5 Ways to Hire International Candidates

By U Diverse Global

Hiring international candidates is a great way to expand and diversify your workforce. You have access to much more talent if you look around the world instead of just locally, so you can find top candidates more easily. Here, we offer 5 ways to effectively hire internationally.

Strong Talent Acquisition Strategy

The hardest part of hiring international candidates can often be finding them. Check in with your recruiting team to make sure they’re going beyond standard networks to find good candidates. Instead of simply relying on your current employees’ friends, consider using services such as U Diverse Global to strategize about hiring internationally.

Clear Job Listings

When hiring internationally, you might be working across language barriers. In this case, it’s critical that your job listings lay out the functions of the role very clearly. Studies show that many job listings don’t accurately tell job hunters what the position is, and you want to avoid this pitfall. No one will move across the world for a job they’re unsure about.

Impeccable Branding

Don’t doubt the importance of branding, particularly for hiring internationally. Many of your international candidates won’t know anyone who works at the company, so they will rely on the messaging you put out to make a decision about your company. Make sure your company also looks great on services such as Glassdoor.

Inclusive At-Work Environment

Candidates coming from other countries want to feel at home at work. They’re leaving behind their families and friends to come to your company, so they hope to make friends there. Make sure your office is a friendly environment with social events that your employees can enjoy.

Employee Retention

Employee retention might be the most important part of hiring internationally. After you’ve invested a huge amount of effort in sourcing and interviewing fantastic candidates from around the world, you don’t want to let them go. Make sure your employees have the support they need to succeed in their positions so that the money you’ve invested in hiring them isn’t wasted.
