The positions with which we've got the most extensive experience were developers and analysts. To make the search for marketers effective, we started with finding some channels that we've never used yet.
Now the pool of our sources included dedicated job sites and social network groups for marketing specialists. In parallel, we've worked on reaching out to specific candidates, primarily via Linkedins.
In total, more than 4 directions were involved in the search:
- Cypriot and Russian job boards (8 sites)
- social network groups, like Facebook (more than 50 groups)
- Telegram channels and chats for the Russian-speaking diaspora in Cyprus (12)
- LinkedIn (posting vacancies, actively searching for candidates and promoting vacancies through our communities and employee personal pages)
In 8 weeks the job post got seen by 2300 people and received 164 responses. After the first screening we've decided to proceed with 80 candidates, whom we interviewed. Of these, 34 candidates were forwarded to the client.
They interviewed 18 candidates and made the first job offer after the first ten interviews. After eight more interviews, a second suitable applicant was decided. The candidates accepted the offers and started to work once the paperwork was completed.
