Be different; be creative.
Find out the candidate’s favourite restaurant (check instagram) and send them a gift card with a note that reads “we want you”.
Get out there and actually go meet your candidate. Make your pitch face-to-face.
Grab coffee, eat lunch, play Ping-Pong.
Let the candidate relax so you can get to know them on a personal basis.
Let the candidate know why you want to hire them, what you’re looking for as a company, and how you can help them grow.
Don’t let hot talent play you (or your competitors). A good hire needs to want you as much as you want them.
Or let us do it for you.
