If you are starting your business, getting help and recruiting the best employees is vital for the future of your business. However, this is not a simple as saying it, recruiting can be really hard and is much hard than you think; you have to go through a lot of CVs to find the perfect candidate that fits your need, then you have to interview them and give them an aptitude test if necessary, this process may take days if not weeks to come to fruition. So, come along with us and let’s get through some tips and advice that can make your recruitment process a little bit easier and more manageable.
1. Write straightforward yet accurate listings
This is a no-brainer, but I feel like I have to say this, some companies write a lot of superfluent things which most people will gloss over or will get bored halfway through their reading. Be concise with what you are searching for and what the company is about. My advice to anyone creating a job listing is to use bullet points as they are more visually pleasing and will attract our attention like a moth being drawn to light. Make it easy to read; this is not an exam question meant to trick the candidates; you are supposed to make it more streamlined to attract more candidates to apply, so you have a bigger pool to choose from. The perfect job description for me is three to four lines about the company, the requirement for the candidate to apply, and the day-to-day task they’ll have to do. All these make your job description look more professional and will garner you more visits and applications.
2. Use social media to your advantage
We are living in the age of social media, so we need to use them to our advantage. Use apps and social media like LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook to advertise your job listing as most of us are on our phones when we are bored, so using social media ads will be a great way to promote and attract more applications to your company. If your company owns a social media platform like Instagram, Twitter, and/or Facebook, which is a must these days, you ought to post the job opening there because your social media pages help you keep in touch with your clients and future employees.
3. Create a seamless and painless application process
This is another thing you will learn along the way, don’t make the application process too longwinded or complicated as it will deter people from applying for a job. Let me tell you, if there are more than two pages to fill for the job application, then the number of applications will significantly dwindle. Don’t forget that the people you are looking for are most likely than not high-skilled and have other job opportunities, and a lengthy application process will make them go for the other option and you will miss out on good if not perfect candidates.
4. Advise form a veteran
You should always remember that what the candidate tells you and how they behave the first couple of weeks on the job is never indicative of their overall behavior. You should never judge a book by its cover, especially when recruiting people; this is recruiting 101. All these steps improve candidate selection and will make your life easier in the elimination and interviewing process. And, don’t worry if there are a couple of hiccups here and there because it is the nature of the gig.
