As we move from crisis to transformation, communications leaders are taking stock to see if they have the right talent on the team for the work that is ahead. When the doors open back up for hiring, you may be inundated with resumes, and it will take a lot of time to sift through them to find those few that may be right for your specific needs. In your rush to just get help after weeks of communicating in crisis mode, you may take the best of a small batch of resumes hastily screened. But what if the best candidate wasn’t in that batch to begin with?
Now is the time to think about the future needs of your team. What roles are going to be critical in the transformation of your organization in a post-pandemic world? How can you start having more casual conversations with potential candidates so they are on your radar when you are ready to hire.
That’s what Linsey Careers does best. Let us be your talent scout. Every day we’re talking with candidates whose job may or may not have been impacted by COVID, but they are looking for that right next step in their career. They may not be looking at job boards but want to hear about potential opportunities in the future.
If you know you will be making changes or adding to your team later this year or early next, we can screen for those key skills you know you will need. And when you’re free to start hiring, you can meet the A-players who want to be on a team with strategic and thoughtful communications leadership. The kind of leadership you offer.
