While the excess of available opportunities is a major benefit for candidates with professional backgrounds in high demand, it is hurting companies who are hiring. Organizations all over the globe are feeling the weight of talent insufficiency, and are continuously facing challenges for a similar pool. To even get on candidates focus, you need to make diverse ways to reach around them. The realism is if a candidate discards your offer, the whole effort which went behind assessing that candidate goes in vain.
The trademark of a superior recruitment strategy is a talent pipeline filled with competent candidates that you can source from at any time. Building a talent pool you can turn to, instead of waiting for candidates to come to you, can save you precious time, money and resources in the longer run.
However, a talent pipeline if not nurtured will dry up. So rather you must actively work to cultivate it by keeping candidates engaged from the moment they penetrate your pipeline until they are finally hired.

The interview must be engaging, provide clarity of the job role and how that role can benefit the candidate to grow needs be conveyed properly. The interview team must communicate well and provide career development clarity during the interview itself.
- Create and invest in employer branding
When internal employees and outside people or stakeholders talk good about the organization, there is a high possibility of offered candidate joining.
