In your work, if you are charged with finding replacement staff, judicious recruitment is about accessing the best candidates. How do you find these? There are a number of strategies you can employ to find them. One obvious way is to utilise the internet to advertise the position. The online environment is particularly functional because it gives a great deal of flexibility and is relatively easy to use. It is extremely cost effective, you are more able to highlight the benefits of your business more comprehensively and you have greater control over the ad format. To maximise the ad’s impact and attract the most credentialed people there are some things you need to consider.
After you have decided on the person’s character and the role they will undertake, you need to craft the ad for maximum impact. You must include some critical elements.
What’s the job?
What’s the business?
What are the job responsibilities?
Who is the person?
Next blog I will go into more detail about writing a job ad with real impact. If you are in need of someone, use the headings above to craft your ad. As well scan other ads and look for the good bits they have. Lastly you may wish to send me your ad and I can give some feedback. Let me know how you go. email@example.com
If you have any thoughts or experiences please share them with me. I can then post these (maintaining confidentiality) on a future blog to start a conversation about the topic. This may start a valuable conversation amongst like minded people to help all of us do things better. firstname.lastname@example.org
