Make Your Hiring Process More Efficient and Cost-Effective

Are you tired of the never-ending hiring process? Well, you’re not alone. Every year, businesses spend billions of dollars on recruiting and hiring, with no end in sight. But it doesn’t have to be this way. There are a few simple things you can do to make your hiring process more efficient and cost-effective.

1. Define your requirements upfront. What skills and experience does your ideal candidate have? By being clear about what you’re looking for, you can save time and money by weeding out candidates who don’t fit the bill.

2. Use technology to your advantage. There are a number of great online tools that can help you screen candidates quickly and efficiently. From online job boards to video interviewing platforms, there’s no shortage of options available.

3. Simplify your application process: The easier it is for candidates to apply, the more likely you are to get a pool of qualified applicants. Keep your application short and sweet, and make sure that there are no unnecessary steps.

4. Get creative with your outreach. Traditional methods of recruiting (e.g., posting a job ad on Monster or CareerBuilder) can be time-consuming and expensive. Instead, try reaching out to potential candidates directly through social media or professional networking sites like LinkedIn.

5. Utilize employee referrals. One of the best ways to find qualified candidates is to ask your employees for recommendations. Chances are they have the level of professionalism and work ethic as the employee referring them.

6. Use an Applicant Tracking System (ATS) – An ATS can help you keep track of applicants and automatically weed out those who don’t meet your minimum qualifications. This can save you a lot of time and money in the long run.

7. Conduct phone screenings – Once you’ve narrowed down your list of candidates, conduct phone screenings to further assess their qualifications. This can save you time and money by ensuring that only the most qualified candidates move on to the next stage of the process.

It can be tough to find the right candidates, but with the right process in place, you can make your hiring process more efficient and cost-effective. Implementing some of these tactics may help you find the best talent for your team. If you need additional help, connect with me here.

Do you need “Accomplishments” on your Resume?

Your resume is how employers first meet you…before they actually decide to have a conversation via email or telephone. Is your resume truly doing you any justice or causing you to get tossed in the throw away pile EVERY TIME?

In a previous video, I talked about how the “Summary of Qualifications” replaced the objective section on a resume. You can watch that video..here’s link here…

You will also need to add what you have accomplished in your previous job opportunities to show how you applied the knowledge, skills and expertise to achieve positive or desired results. Your future employer needs to know you can create those positive or desired results for them as well, so showcasing your accomplishments communicate it to them directly. The accomplishments are helping to market you better than other candidates that only communicate their skills, knowledge base and credentials.
