How do I find candidates?

We don't restrict the resources or creativity you use to source and find candidates; it's entirely up to you! Our most successful virtual recruiters use the following great places to start.

  • Personal network: To find great candidates, reach out to friends, colleagues, and members of any organisations you are a part of online or in your community. The best way to build your network is to ask for personal referrals from your candidates. If you're speaking with a professional, chances are they know or have worked with other job seekers as well; never leave a conversation with a candidate without asking! Depending on the industry, there are many physical and virtual groups to join that can provide a great candidate base, including many professional groups on Social Media and LinkedIn. You can always use your unique referral link, which can be found via the icons on any job posting, to have candidates apply directly, making it simple and easy!

  • Resume databases and job boards: Platforms such as Indeed, LinkedIn, ZipRecruiter, Career Builder, and others are excellent resources for contacting candidates and searching for potential leads for the jobs you are recruiting for. While many of these recruiting platforms will have a fee, many will have free versions or offer free trials for you to try before committing any money to them. In these free versions, you can often find a large candidate pool for specific career types; it just takes a little time to research and figures out which one best suits your needs. It's important to remember that not all job boards and sourcing platforms are created equal; depending on your experience, some platforms will be far more beneficial than others. For example, if you're looking for sales professionals, LinkedIn is a great resource; however, if you're looking for doctors or nurses, this platform won't yield many results.

Regardless of which sourcing route you choose as a recruiter, it's important to note that without any recruiting experience, finding success on the Relode platform will take much longer. Individuals with prior experience in the recruiting or talent acquisition space should use our site to help prepare you for the expectations and skill set required to not only find but properly screen and refer candidates to the best jobs for them. Unfortunately, Recruitopia may not be a good fit if you are looking for a place to learn how to be a recruiter.


** We currently require all Recruitopia virtual recruiters to have 2+ years of recent, full-time, full-cycle, professional recruiting experience outside of the Recruitopia Platform.**
