Social Talent Academy

Engaging Talent

How to connect with talent in a meaningful and engaging manner.

Course Details

In this program, you’ll learn how to connect effectively with passive candidates so that they will be more likely to respond to you. We will talk about how to find contact details for candidates you find online, as well as what to say now that you’re going to reach out to them. What will get them to answer your call, or open your email? What will encourage them to respond? We’ll use behavioural psychology and proven sales tactics to get your response rate up and create an all-round positive experience. We will also look at good communication practices, and discuss how to think more about the candidate themselves and their personality in order to connect with them effectively.
