While there might seem to be an abundance of people looking for work, finding the right person to fill your vacancy is not necessarily made easier when there are more people than ever applying for every position. Here are three tips to help you make sure you find the best candidate.
Have a great marketing strategy
Make sure you strategically place your ads where you know the right people will see them. Simply posting advertising jobs in generic locations will increase the number of unqualified applications that you receive. Know exactly what you are looking for in your new employee then research the best location where you can attract that type of person.
Make your advertisement attractive
A job advertisement should be readable as well as pleasing to the eye. Too much text and people will be put off, not enough and you leave it open to a wider range of applicants. Make sure you brand your ad with your company logo and slogan if you have one.
Fine-tune your selection process
When the CVs start to arrive on your desk, know how you are going to select the best ones. It is a good idea to have a checklist handy of all the criteria and stick to it as much as possible. Once you have selected the CV’ of the people you would like to interview, make sure that your interview process is smooth, clear, and as straightforward as possible.
