|Finding Good Job Candidates |
The website businesstown.com offers many tips, including some for attracting good candidates. Here are the suggestions they list on their website:
The Internet is a popular choice as of late, as more and more often jobs are being found through online job banks such as careercity.com, Monster.com, and others. Some online services will place ads for professional openings at no charge.
Newspapers are the most traditional way to attract job applicants, but even small ads can be fairly expensive.
Trade Publications let an employer target a specific industry or a niche in that industry.
Professional Groups: Businesstown.com says you may want to try sending a one-page job description to professional groups and associations that publish newsletters or regularly post openings either on-line or at the association's headquarters.
Networking is another way to put out your feelers. Use the phone to network among colleagues in the industry and even among your peers in competing organizations. Tell them you have an opening available and give them a brief job description.
