Every year we make resolutions to help better ourselves, whether it’s our mental or physical health, or to push us to do something we’ve been wanting to do for a while. Why not make recruiting a priority and add recruiting resolutions to the mix?
New decade, new beginnings, and the perfect opportunity to start you recruiting efforts on the right foot! Try one (or all!) of these recruiting resolutions:
1) Improve the candidate rejection experience
Yup, we’re jumping right in here right off the bat with something that no one likes to talk about: rejection. It’s an unfortunate part of the job and just has to be done no matter how uncomfortable it may be.
This decade, make the entire candidate experience your priority by revamping how you tell candidates the news that they didn’t get the job.

2) Start tracking recruiting metrics
Let’s say you want to run a marathon in a few months. Would you sign up and just run it with no training? Hopefully not! You’d most likely start a gradual training regimen and track your progress.
The same holds true for your recruiting team.
Make this recruiting resolution a priority by tracking the metrics that matter most to your team. For example, number of interviews scheduled, reschedules, time spent by job and stage, and more.
Tracking these numbers is one of the best (and easiest!) ways to make sure your team is getting where it needs to go!
3) Better your relationships with your team
Recruiting is a team effort. It’s just impossible to A) try to do everything by yourself and B) actually do everything by yourself.
We all respect the #grind and working hard, but it’s just not sustainable to only work without spending time with your team. This includes not just your direct teammates, but also your interviewers, hiring managers, and coworkers on other teams!
4) Take time for your yourself!
Most importantly? Make yourself a priority this new year. Working in recruiting means it’s easy to prioritize others before you: candidates, hiring managers, interviewers, the list goes on and on….
From all of us at GoodTime, we hope you have a happy new year!
