Your business is full of complicated moving parts that all must fill their role.

Therefore, attracting and hiring the perfect candidates becomes a staple to set yourself above your competition. Focal Point Business Coaching of PA has all the answers and insider tips when it comes to arming your business with the best-of-the-best.
Nobody understands your business better than you. You know what you have in abundance, and what you are lacking. When creating a job description for an open position, it’s important to list the specific skill set and highlight exactly what you are looking for in the ideal hiree. It’s pivotal to make sure that candidates completely understand what is expected of them and for them to understand what their role would be in your company. Making your employees, especially your new ones, feel valued and comfortable is exemplary leadership.
Next, you want to flood the marketplace with this position and make sure that it gets seen by the public. This is where your knowledge of social media will be tested, utilizing it to your max potential. It’s best to post your openings on dedicated outlets whose mission is professional networking, like LinkedIn, Monster or Indeed, to name a few. For every single inquiry you get about your position, you should respond back as quickly as possible, even if it’s just thanking them for their time. Job seekers move quickly and won’t hesitate to drop a lead if they don’t believe they are being pursued. When you get back to them quickly, it lets them know that you are actively seeking people out and will get results fast.
Lastly, before you set up an interview, it’s a smart idea to screen your candidates during a preliminary round. How you do this process is up to you, and we can guide you with some of the best strategies to consistently hire the best candidates for your business. Of course, it helps to make sure that your face-to-face interview is with a candidate you have researched first hand. When evaluating their work history, you want to make sure they seem like someone who would adhere to your company values and serve your business well.
