Two More Words: Follow Up! Fall Conference Recruiting Guide – Part Two

Okay, you’re back from the big conference. The business cards have been slung, the hands of been shook, the babies have been kissed. Now What? You might consider fostering your investment of time and energy by building upon the recruiting groundwork laid.

Targeted follow up can really make a difference when interacting with prospective recruits. You can start by simply sending a handwritten note or making a post conference phone call to a new or existing connection. These time-tested methods are a great way to stay in front of recruits. Maybe even set a monthly or quarterly calendar reminder to reach back out and say hello. In fact, if you went beyond the surface level conversations as we suggested in Part One, you can build upon what you’ve learned by referencing your new insights which will strengthen the candidate relationship.

For a slightly less traditional approach, you might also consider getting in touch on Social Media Outlets, i.e. following the recruit on LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc. These resources are a nice venue to help stay abreast of key life events and happenings that may be of interest to your new connection. Maybe they will even follow you back!

Most importantly to note in your post conference activity is that Recruiting is an Ongoing Effort. Think of recruiting in terms of long-term strategy with relatively short bursts of immediate action in times of need. The market insight and relationships you may have gained from the fall conference season should hopefully produce results in the winter months. If you need help…feel free to give us a call.
