It makes sense to attract the most qualified candidates quickly and efficiently.
A lot of time can be wasted in the hiring process. We have some suggestions about making it easier on the employer.
First: Look at the job description. Does it fill a page? That’s too much. Break down the job description into the most important elements – the key functions of the position, the skills and experience needed or recommended, the salary, and the hours. You can fill in other details in an interview.
Second: Consider offering training. Some skills can be easily taught. If training is feasible, it could be a great investment for you.
Third: Use your own networks when hiring. Business colleagues, staff, friends, and family. Send a company email; let people know on LinkedIn and social media. It’s a great way to find people who may already be familiar with your company.
Lastly: Make it easy on the applicants. They need a résumé or portfolio and solid work references. But don’t subject them to lengthy applications and numerous or unwieldy interviews.
