It’s a Passive Candidate’s World

According to LinkedIn, about 70% of the workforce is considered passive. In case you’re new here, that means they’re employed but potentially looking for a job change.

The kicker is you won’t find passive candidates in your applications. They have no idea who you are, probably don’t know anything about your company, and they don’t want the job you’re offering.

Well…they don’t want it yet

You Just Live in It

This is where you step in.

Engaging passive candidates takes a specialized level of communication, mindset, and proactive nurturing that doesn’t necessarily apply to their active peers. But it’s not impossible.

Lauren Kessler, Regional Talent Acquisition Manager at Slalom and Passive Candidate Whisperer, has offered us 60 minutes of in-depth training on December 13th.

Lauren will outline six proven steps to help move your most sought-after passive candidates to active opportunities.

What You’ll Learn:

  1. Where to Find Passive Candidates
  2. Messaging: Get them excited about the company, not the role
  3. Offer the Networking Call
  4. Ask! And respect if they aren’t interested
  5. A Casual Process: offer casual next steps that benefit the candidate
  6. Keep in Touch

Patience Is the Process

But it’s worth it.

Staying sharp with nearly 70% of the active workforce makes sense – whether for the role you have open now or one they’ll (more than likely) be looking for later.

Dust off your passive contact list, give it a big ole hug, and see you at the webinar.
