If you’re a small business owner, you know how difficult it can be to compete with large corporations for the best employees. However, entrepreneurs who can land top hires end up with much more successful companies, and those hires are often instrumental in building that success. How can you recruit and hire employees like this?
Social media is one way; Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn level the playing field considerably. Any company of any size can have the same presence there. Be active on the networks where you know you’ll find your target, and build relationships by asking and responding to questions. Providing information on potential careers on your company’s website is another key to landing top hires. Your website will be one of the first places a job seeker will visit during the search process, so it’s also a good idea to keep a blog about your employees and your workplace to give a better sense of what it’s like to work there. Finally, you need to be strategic with your job postings. You don’t have time to sift through hundreds of resumes; consider services that offer single job postings on strategic sites where you can be sure the right candidates are hanging out. Follow these tips, and you’ll find yourself recruiting like the best of them!
