Tip #1: Cater to Tech-Savvy Job Searchers
Even entry-level, hourly workers have smartphones and an internet connection. People look online for employment information and to research employers. You need to make sure that you are publishing the right information online that will bring candidates to your website. Recent studies
show that candidates tend to favor businesses with good wages and benefits, as well as opportunities for advancement. When someone starts in an entry-level position, they want the chance to move up to management in the future. So, your description needs to entice the qualified candidates with details about benefits and advancement opportunities in the future.
Job titles need to be attention-grabbing, and the descriptions should be engaging. Include keywords that will increase the chances that your posting will show up in search results. At the same time, don't skip details that are necessary for the candidate to know, such as required skills, wage range, job duties, benefits, and more. Tip #2: Build a Database and Leverage Your List
Creating an online list of potential candidates can be a powerful way to speed up the process of hiring in the future. For example, you might post a job opening and hire two people out of 150 applications that were received. Even though you turned away 148 people, it doesn't mean that they won't be the right fit when the position opens up again.
Invite qualified candidates to join a notification list so that they can stay updated about new job opportunities when they are available. Then, you have a warm market that can be used in the future when turnover happens.
