Can you use the Web to find top-notch job candidates in an exceptionally tight labor market? Aspen Tree Software, a leader in computer-driven human resources systems, says Net-savvy businesses can indeed use the Web for recruiting, and the company offers several tips for doing it right:
- Create a recruitment site--an online advertisement--and link it to search engines like Yahoo! (http://www.yahoo.com) and Infoseek (http://www.infoseek.com).
- Develop an online employment application to make it easy for candidates to express interest.
- Use e-mail to stay in touch with job candidates. Even if no position is currently available, e-mail can keep them thinking of you.
