Hiring is often the most challenging aspect of managing a business. As your business grows, you must find excellent candidates from which to choose, and it isn’t a simple process. But there are some tools that savvy businesspeople have been using to save time and money.
Here are three of them. Maybe these tools can help you:
LinkedIn continues to be the best social platform for professionals. All it takes is a basic profile, and it will to help you in the hiring process. And it all starts with the filtered search tool. With this you can get your search narrowed down to the best candidates for your opening, using keywords and locations.
After you have filtered your searches, you can send a connection request and either message them immediately or wait for them to connect with you. The latter option gives them an opportunity to look at your profile and decide whether they want to communicate with you.
Once they accept your connection request, you can send an initial message that’s personalized based on what you learned from their profile. This type of message is time-consuming to create, but it’s much more useful than a generic message that might be ignored.
Glassdoor is a fast-growing job and recruiting site that has a massive database of company reviews, approval ratings, salary and benefits reports, and photos. It’s one of the most efficient ways for potential candidates to find out what it’s like to work for your company.
Since the first thing potential applicants see is your overall rating, it’s crucial your company has a high number. Responding to reviews—whether good or bad—is important because it’s an indication you are acknowledging the ways you need to improve and you listen to the feedback from past or current employees.
Glassdoor offers effective recruiting and employer branding solutions by allowing your business to write about your products and services, highlight your culture, and get it in front of the kind of talent you are hoping to recruit.
Indeed has a reputation for being a great driver of talent. Its “Resume Search” feature helps you find candidates with resumes that match specific criteria such as job title, skills or company. And after you conduct the initial search, it offers more filters, giving you an opportunity to hover over a candidate’s name and preview their resume.
Once you complete the search, you can immediately send a message to a candidate through the site. It’s an efficient and organized method that allows you to get through a large volume of candidates in a short amount of time.
Indeed has an option for companies to pay for a promoted posting, freeing up time for you to do other recruiting while the post works in the background.
