Targeting and Attracting Candidates
The best advice that we can offer employers or recruiters seeking candidates to fill a particular vacancy is be clear about what you are looking for in the ideal candidate, and in your business overall. Of course everybody is open to new and stunning candidates that may take them by surprise from time to time, but you are far more likely to find the candidate that you seek if you have thought about the ideal person in terms of skills, experience, career level, locations etc. The more accurate your understanding of the ideal candidate that you seek, the easier it will be to target candidate groups that are likely to match your requirements and be motivated to apply.
Preparing Effective Job Ads
In contrast to the points made above (Targeting and Attracting Candidates), we would always recommend a taking a more general approach when preparing job ads on the internet. The starting point is to have a very clear understanding about the ideal candidate that you seek, but in preparing job ads you need to reflect the job searching methods and habits of your target audience.
It is very easy to exclude part of the target candidate audience just because they do not use exactly the same terminology as your industry sector or business.

Follow Up With Applicants.
It is good practice to follow up with all applicants that respond to your applications. The only exception to this rule should be the odd occasion when candidates that are clearly inappropriate for a role proceed to apply, ignoring your clearly expressed requirements.
A best in class procedure would be to acknowledge the application when received, and then to communicate progress or decision in due course. At the very least candidates should be made aware of the time frame for your recruitment activities and that if they have not received further communication by the end of that period then to consider the application unsuccessful.
