Hiring for the 2021 Season: The Top Five Hiring Resources
Are you starting to plan for what your workforce looks like for the 2021 season? As you may or may not know, there was a major foreign work visa reduction last year, which left a lot of businesses scrambling at the last minute to staff up for the season. With the uncertainty that COVID-19 brings for this coming season, OptimizeHR is recommending that you look into other resources for hiring your seasonal help. It is never too early, since summer will be here before you know it.
Here are the top five suggestions for hiring resources:
LinkedIn: This resource is a platform where other professionals are networking, and potentially looking for new opportunities. Don’t be afraid to reach out to current connections or new ones to see if they are looking for a new job. In addition, LinkedIn has job boards that you can post to.
Craigslist: To some, Craigslist has a bad reputation. However, it can be effective for the proper demographic. It is a low cost option, and may present some solid candidates.
Indeed: Indeed is more expensive than Craigslist, but can be very effective if the ad is drafted properly and placed in the proper location. Indeed also allows employers to manage their applicants.
Facebook: Did you know that you can add your job posting to Facebook? You can also post on your own personal page or your business page that you are looking for new team members. If you use Facebook there is the possibility to be very targeted, and can be an effective way to recruit for certain demographics/candidates.
Coolworks: This platform offers many, COOL JOBS, throughout the United States. https://www.coolworks.com/
