Recruitment - Attracting Best Applicants

What is the most effective way in attracting highly-qualified applicants? There are lots of ways to attract applicants, but what do you think is the best one?

Attracting Highly Qualified Candidates

Hi Kimberly: You have to show the applicants that your organization is creative and innovative.
You also need to use a variety of recruitment processes, including social media, ads in professional magazines, internet connections to job sites, and if needed headhunters. Reaching out to applicants will work, but they have to see the opportunity and feel like there is good value. I would also reach out to a diverse group of applicants.

Attracting Top Applicants

@David Wilson: I agree with you. Nowadays, job applicants are much better informed (due to new information technology, etc.). Merely having a very nice recruitment campaign will no longer work.
You have to actually BE a very nice, creative, innovative, and fun company to work for in order to attract 'smart creatives" and of course spread the word about it.
Google, an excellent example of a company that is very good at attracting top talent, is doing both of these things as their chairman Eric Schmidt explains in his recent book 'How Google works.'.
