Recruiting is undoubtedly extremely time consuming and expensive, that’s why recruitment professionals are always looking for ways to perfect the hiring process of their respective organization.
In fact, the average cost per hire in the United States is just over $4,000. If you combine the cost with the average interview process duration of 23 days, you’re looking at a high investment. This leaves business owners frustrated and financially restricted when it comes to hiring new team members. But there are multiple hacks and tips that can assist you in perfecting your hiring process which allow you to save time and money.
- Take advantage of social media
High quality talent is hanging out on social media, and you need to get in front of them. Running LinkedIn Job ads is very effective in bringing in quality talent in a short time period. If you recruiting for warehouse/manufacturing jobs, then I would highly recommend posting jobs in local Facebook groups, you can easily get 10-20 candidates from local Facebook groups.
2. Write effective job descriptions
With so many job posts having irrelevant requirements, writing effective job descriptions is essential if you want to stand out to top tier talent. Here are a couple of tips to write better job descriptions.
- Focus on concrete skills.
- Show what you can do for the potential employee rather then showing what they can do for you.
- Don’t write generic requirements
3. Choose a good recruiting software
Before you even follow any of the steps below, you should choose a recruiting software that can filter out unqualified resumes, scheduling interviews, and much more. A software recommendation would be VeriKlick.
