- 1. Use online network
Most fresh graduates are familiar with internet connection and subscribe vacancy information from postings online. There are some alternatives to optimize the recruitment process, through job finder service, professional link service and online media advertisement. Adding up a rubric for employment opportunities in the company website can also be a way to attract new candidates, especially when it is linked with professional links service or universities and colleges.
