To those that work in the human resources industry, it should come as no great surprise that unfortunate staffing shortages do happen. What may not be so obvious is how to correct them. If you find yourself in such a position this holiday season, we’d like to recommend taking the following actions:
Start to repair the damage by logging onto Jobvertise. Once you are on site, conduct a free resume search. It will turn up the resumes of those presently looking for employment in your geographical area. Under the free search plan, you’ll be able to look at 20 of those resumes each day.
Next, take the 20 job candidates that appeared during your free resume search and go over what they posted. As you do, look for any red flags. If you find a resume that doesn’t quite suit your needs, discard it and move on. When you are finished, go back over the remaining resumes and attempt to make contact with the job seekers. Hopefully, you’ll be able to set up interviews quickly and make a final selection.
If you have very little time to fill your firm’s open positions, consider signing up for a paid resume search plan and our recruiting services instead. The paid search plans allow you to view anywhere from 50 to 300 resumes per day. In addition, you’ll be able to get supplemental contact information like direct e-mails. That should make it easier for you to make contact and set up interviews.
The recruiting services, on the other hand, can help bring your firm’s job postings to the attention of qualified candidates. Additional recruitment resources available include, but are not limited to, featured jobs listings, RSS feeds and customized job notification pages.
