5 Practical Steps of Job Placement in Recruitment 

 

The task of job-hunting might be daunting for jobseekers, but, on the flip side, it is also challenging for employers to find qualified and committed employees. A job placement service can act as an intermediary between jobseekers and employers. The task of an intermediary person can be two-fold as both a placement specialist and job developer. 

In some cases, job placement programs are designed to offer financial assistance to an employer who hires someone through placement service and where employment is maintained for a certain length of time, for example for six months.

Benefits 

Effective job placement programs in connection with other human resource services can help reduce the length of time that people are unemployed, minimise the stress and struggle of the job search process, and fill the staffing needs of local businesses that contribute to the economic vitality of the community. 

For jobseekers, they will have access to potential jobs that might not be advertised elsewhere and their skills and career objectives can be specifically matched to employment openings. Meanwhile, for employers, they will benefit from having potential candidates pre-screened through the placement service. They do not have to wade through piles of resumes. Only candidates qualified for the position are referred to them.

Practical steps to job placement 

  • In the early planning stages, leaders should consider not only the interests and capabilities of the target populations, but also the types of initiatives that are being funded by government and private industry, and the stuffing needs of local employers. 

  • Recruiters can design ways to combine these factors in a program that will have a broad relationship to an overall human resources development strategy. 

  • Building positive relationships and alliances with local businesses is an essential element of a job placement service. Staying in touch with local business people allows you to remain informed of and responsive to their needs, to get feedback for improvement on services, and more importantly to maintain a network of satisfied employers who provide jobs to people through company’s service. 

  • Look for ways to develop strategic partnerships to create a full human resource development system. 

  • Consider ways that recruiters can provide support to the new employee and employers, to ensure that the job placement is a success for both parties. This might include techniques such as check-ins to see that both parties are satisfied with the employment arrangements.
