What is Inbound Recruiting?

Inbound recruiting is a methodology that creates unforgettable candidate impressions through employer engagement strategies that help companies build relationships with top talent.

Traditional recruiting strategies are like handing out individual glasses of water on a warm summer day. You clearly have what people want, but the results are limited to your physical ability to distribute. You may reach some candidates, but it is not scalable, efficient, or cost-effective.

Inbound recruiting strategies are like establishing a local pool on a warm summer day. The environment attracts and engages interested candidates on your behalf. Some candidates will dive right in. Others will dip their toes. But everyone will appreciate the pool. Your HR team is then able to quickly identify the most relevant and interested candidates reducing your cost per hire.
