The best way to effectively communicate your EVP to individual candidates and speak to their unique interests, needs, and wants is to develop candidate personas. Short and sweet, a candidate persona is a representation of what the ideal candidate looks like for a particular role within your organization. With our candidate persona canvas template, you’ll have the ability to create target candidate personas for those hard-to-fill, niche, or high volume positions you really need to focus on in 2018.
You’ve heard it before, but recruiters don’t just have to think or act like marketers. Recruiters have to be marketers.

A candidate journey map defines all of the interactions a candidate may go through as they journey throughout the job discovery, application, interviewing, and selection processes. The map provides a way to visualize and effectively analyze how a candidate reacts and engages with your brand throughout the process – all from the candidate’s perspective. This template is designed to help you lay out all the touchpoints that could happen through the candidate’s journey, equipping you with information to fine-tune your processes and create a unique and personalized candidate experience.
We recently audited the career sites and candidate experience of more than 800 of the world’s largest organizations to show you where companies are excelling and falling short in the process. With the State of Talent Relationship Marketing e-book, you’ll be equipped with how candidate experience is handled across multiple industries, helping you to identify key areas of improvement for your own organization including: career site architecture, personalization of content, search functionality and ease of use, and application design and functionality.
