Finding and hiring the perfect employee is like trying to find a needle in a haystack, but not impossible.
Your desk has piles of resumes and job applications; your email inbox has a flood of more. It seems almost impossible to find the perfect hire for your business. The hiring process can be daunting, and in some cases, you might feel like giving up. Here’s how you can find someone who will fit perfectly into your company.
1Create Job Requirements That You Want
It’s almost impossible to find anyone who will love working at your company more than you do. But, you do want to attract a new hire who is passionate about the work, the product or service you sell, and is ready to embody your company values each and every day.
Your job requirements should include points related to how impactful their position is to the company, how they can grow with your company, and what they can expect moving forward. Start looking for and hiring applicants who will match these needs!
2Craft A Compelling Career Posting
Your career posting is what’s going to attract the perfect hires to your company. This is your first impression, so make it count! Just because you’re looking for an entry-level applicant doesn’t mean that they deserve something subpar.
Instead, write a clear and concise job posting that will entice the right people to apply. Keep it professional, but also have some fun with it. Let applicants know why they should apply and what you can offer them.
3Start Screening Applicants
Make a list of all of the qualified applicants for the position. On this list, write basic information about each person, such as their name, age, location and qualifications. If any of them have the experience that would fit into your business model, put a star next to their names.
Make the application-screening process easier by having a system in place. This way you get an idea of who would be great for the position. Look through all of the applications and resumes. At this point, you should have a solid list of qualified applicants. Now, it’s just a matter of finding the perfect hire.
