Let’s face it. Finding and hiring good employees the old fashioned way is expensive. There are newspaper ads to place, multiple interviews to conduct and background checks to pay for. In some instances, for large firms, that can add up to thousands of dollars each year. On a positive note, there are more affordable, modern day recruitment methods that are available to employers. Here’s a look at one of the best ones:
When it comes to finding the perfect group of new employees at a reasonable price, you can’t beat online recruiting sites. Let’s take our site, Jobvertise as an example. Our online recruiting site features a basic resume searching plan that is absolutely free. It allows companies to view 140 resumes a week and post help wanted ads. We also have other online recruiting plans that allow for additional resume viewings, custom job landing pages and featured job listing capabilities. They tend to range in price from $29 to $89 per month.
A help wanted advertisement, on the other hand, is likely to cost you much more than that and deliver far less. Understandably, the advertising costs will vary based on the newspaper and the ad itself. However, for comparison purposes, one time ads in some major metropolitan papers tend to sell for $133 per column inch. To make the advertisement standout above the others, there are usually other costs involved as well. Examples include fees for prime placement and specialized coloring. In addition to the higher price, newspaper ads traditionally come with little to no extras. For instance, there is a good chance that placing a newspaper ad won’t give you access to an international database full of quality candidates and custom job landing pages.
Those are just a few of the ways that an online recruiting site can save businesses money. If you would like to learn more, please contact us through the Jobvertise website.
