If you’re looking for help in your business, are you writing posts like this one above? Based off of this, do you think skilled, qualified applicants will be flooding an inbox?
I’m going to take a guess and say, no. Why?
This post is an example of what I see on a daily basis – it’s vague. If you put a post like this on Upwork, Fiverr, or a Facebook group, you’re going to get a ton of responses…from people who are not your ideal candidate. There’s a difference between receiving a ton of responses and receiving responses from good, quality people.
Here are three ways to make sure you have quality people attracted to your job posting:
1 – Who is your ideal candidate? Yes, just like you have an idea of your ideal client, you need an idea of what an ideal team member would look like in your business. Sit down and think about who you’d want to work alongside with. What makes him or her happy? What are their strengths? Do they have any goals (other than to make money)?
Once you’ve thought of your ideal candidate, write it out on paper. Write like you are speaking directly to them.
2 – Make your post stand out. Don’t just write out the responsibilities that a candidate will need to do. BORRRRING! Tell them about your company and explain what makes your business different than others. The goal is to make the candidate excited about wanting to join your team.
3 – Get to know your ideal candidate. Get them on the phone or (even better) a Skype call. Let them show you their personality. Ask them how they spend their day and what major projects they’ve done in the past. What are they proud of? Sure, you can hire anyone to manage your CRM system but ask yourself…if you met this person in-person, would it drive you crazy or would you enjoy their company?
