  2. Spread the news: There are a variety of ways you can let people know that you're hiring, and you want to take full advantage of all of them. Beyond updating your own website, you'll also want to share on your social media profiles, employment and career websites, employee referral programs, even potentially setting up a job fair. This will be sure to get you a large pool of applicants to choose from.
  3. Plan and structure your interviews: As your strongest hiring tool, it's important that you have a well-planned and structured interview process. From additional testing or any assessments that need to be completed to question preparation, a good interview allows you to not only get to know more about the person behind the job application and resume but also makes it easier to compare candidates as you go through your standard questions.
  4. Complete background checks: As one of the more important steps when hiring a new employee, you'll want to give yourself peace of mind knowing that you made the right choice by conducting a thorough background check. Through our partnership with National Crime Search (NCS), you can quickly receive your applicant's records and information from all 50 states straight to your email.
  5. Properly communicate with your candidates: Developing a positive relationship with your candidates is necessary when trying to recruit the right people. You'll want to be sure you're valuing everyone's time by keeping in touch during every stage of the recruitment process. This includes letting them know about any additional requirements you need along with expected timelines.
