You are often faced with the challenge of finding the right qualified candidate for a position. You send emails to your contact list. You place notices in company newsletters and on the company website. Perhaps you advertise on Craigslist, or a newspaper. Maybe you send notices to one or more public distribution lists of technology folks in the area.
You’re blindly firing a shotgun in the air hoping that a duck will fly by at the right moment.
Often, highly qualified candidates are employed and will not register on your company website. They will not want to have emails from recruiters coming to their company mailbox.
