Inbound Recruiting: The goal of inbound recruiting is the same as inbound marketing: driving traffic, building awareness, nurturing relationships, and converting your audience into top candidates applying to your jobs. The inbound marketing blueprint can also be used when it comes to recruiting top talent for the company. It requires you to engage candidates at every stage of the recruiting funnel from attracting, to nurturing, to converting, to closing, to retaining. It’s about building an ongoing conversation. It’s important to promote your employer brand, create shareable content, and build relationships.

What is a reference check? A reference check is a step some companies choose to complete at the final stage of an interview process. Hiring managers will ask a candidate, who they are considering extending an offer to, for a list of former employers/co-workers/managers who they have permission to contact. It’s another opportunity for a hiring manager to reach out to former employers to learn more about a candidate’s work experience, qualifications, and culture fit.
