We asked Lelia, a National Talent Recruiter for Productions Plus, to tell us her secrets on how she finds the perfect talent for your brand.
Here are 5 ways Lelia recruits for you.
What are the first steps you take when filling a job?
Productions Plus has a very loyal talent base. Currently, we have over 26,000 candidates across the United States and Canada.
We start by sending out email blasts to our internal database, highlighting the requirements for the job. Next, we post to third-party resources and social media, like LinkedIn, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and more, with one-of-a-kind graphics to appeal to the right demographic.
How do you know that a person is the right fit for a brand?
Each client is different. We pay attention to the details. To find the right fit for a brand, it is essential for our Recruiters to have knowledge of the brand and understand the client’s expectations. We seek out what is truly important to each client and then begin to recruit.
To ensure the candidate is culturally a fit for the client, we measure the candidate’s compatibility with the client’s expectations. It is crucial to interview a candidate beyond a simple phone conversation. All P+ talent must go through a Skype, Facetime, or in-person interview with a Recruiter or Coordinator before being hired for a job.
How do you present the available candidates to the brand?
We typically create a digital presentation showcasing the top available candidates. We present 1-2 photos and full details reflecting why each candidate would be the right fit for the client (location, client expectations, background, education, etc.). We often take it to the next level by setting up one-on-one phone or Skype interviews with the client. At times, we request a video or demo reel from the talent so that the client can get a better feel for the talents mannerisms.
Should you need more options, what are some other steps you take to find additional candidates?
It’s important to stay up-to-date with the latest recruiting resources, like job search engines, local boards/groups, media, retail and university pages, and classifieds. We have an active talent pipeline that continues to grow every day with the consistent efforts of our recruiting team. We understand that it is crucial to think outside the box and to tap into all possible markets to meet our clients expectations.
What are some exceptional and unusual ways P+ searches for talent?
We go beyond the ordinary steps of recruiting by hosting nationwide auditions and open calls as a more intimate way of meeting new talent in-person. We also hold auditions in specific locations, for a specific brand, to broaden our talent options for a particular job.
We take recruiting seriously at Productions Plus, and we do whatever it takes to find the right talent for the job.
