Recruiters are facing more and more pressure to find innovative ways of attracting top talent through their outreach programs. One successful strategy to consider involves email drip campaigns.

A drip campaign is used by direct marketers to turn passive job seekers into engaged candidates by automatically contacting them several times over a pre-set period (usually one month to several months).

While it seems simple enough, there are many conflicting opinions about how many emails a company should send, what these emails should say, and what day of the week/time of day is best to send them. So, if you’re looking for a quick overview of best practices, read on. (And please remember: there’s no rule here that’s hard and fast; there will always be exceptions.)

Making our way in the fiercely competitive landscape of likes and clicks is tough. Fortunately, Google Ads is here to help. Advertising with Google allows you to control your messaging, own your search engine results page (SERP) and build your career brand – all while targeting the candidates you desire.

Google Ads has two components that we use on a daily basis for our clients at NAS, the Search Network and the Display Network.

Google Display Network
The Google Display Network reaches over 90% of internet users worldwide. Google Display is divided into two segments: retargeting and managed placement. Managed placement is all about targeting the audiences and content of websites that are related to what you are promoting, while retargeting is used to keep past visitors to your site engaged.

Managed placement advertising allows us to target the passive job seeker. The user may not exactly be in “job search mode” but while going about their normal internet activity they will see your ads, thus creating awareness.
