Press Release: 5 Quick Ways Employers Can Attract New Employees

Detroit, Michigan – A new year has sparked thousands of job opening in several cities; however the search to find qualified candidates is always a laborious task. Here are a few tips to help your company attract the perfect candidates ready to interview with your company.

Brag, Brag, and Build Interest. Identify three outstanding qualities about your company so you can share it with newspapers and local media. Word-of-mouth marketing can reach twice as many people. Potential candidates are extremely interested in working for companies that offer high salaries, opportunities for advancement, paid health insurance, retirement planning and vacation pay. Think about how you can build the reputation of your company by creating marketing advertisements that highlight what you can do for the perfect candidates. From a classified advertisement that features the picture of current employees listing what your company offers to a viral video showing an inside look at your daily operations.

Be Creative, Host a Contest. Nothing like a good contest to encourage applicants to submit their resume. Prospecting for new applicants can be expensive, hard work, and can eat up the budget of any company small or large with no result guarantee. The best job applicant have always been, still is, and will always be the one who contacts you. Every 30-days launch a big resume contest; offer the best prospects a 30-60-90-day hiring incentive. Get your local college radio station to promote the event.

Just like the F.B.I – Post a Reward. Social media is a great place to generate buzz use your companies Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin pages to get people to promote your Most Wanted List post a reward for information leading to a new hire. If recruiting good talent is puzzling you put some money out there - get people to search for you. Be sure to include your current employees and local churches in the search everyone loves extra money.

Get Out the Office and Network. Company recruiters can’t sort through faceless resumes daily and expect the best candidates to magically appear. Attending a JobFairGiant.com Job Expo event can increase your chance of meeting dynamic candidates eager to interview with your company. Potential applicants attend job expo events with the intentions to discover new job markets, network with industry recruiters to secure a formal interview. JobFairGiant.com has sponsored job expo events in several Michigan cities for over twelve years; connecting hiring employers with experienced professionals, recent college graduates, military veterans and entry-level workers.

Volunteers Welcome to Apply. There is no way to estimate if new hire’s will mesh well with your company, preform assign task well or improve productivity in their department. Internships and volunteering is not just for high school or college kids. Candidates that have the education for the job but lack the work experience maybe willing to work pro bono for a limited time. To ensure volunteers will put their best skills forward offer a weekly salary draw, encourage friendly competition invite multiple candidates to volunteer at the same time, be sure to agree on a volunteer start date and end date – no one wants to waste their time volunteering if a job offer is not possible.
