Advances in digital technology make it possible for both job seekers and hiring managers to quickly, easily and cost-effectively connect with each other. From online job boards to video interviews, SMBs can take back the hiring process and improve their bottom line – at no cost.
Here are some ways that SMBs can save time and money, and find the best possible candidates for your available jobs:
- Post your positions to free job boards. Unlike Monster or CareerBuilder, free sites like GetHired.com enable you to post open positions at no cost, and then immediately access the photo, resume and video introductions of hundreds of thousands of qualified candidates.
- Pre-screen candidates. Inviting any candidate into your office for an interview takes time away from a small business owner’s primary responsibilities. One way to ensure that your time is well spent is to pre-screen candidates using multiple-choice questions, written responses, video or audio. That way, when they come in for the interview, you already know that they are the real deal.
- Utilize video interviews. Not only are video interviews a great way to save money on transportation and other candidate expenses, but they are becoming increasingly common in the hiring process.
From posting a job, to reviewing applicants, to pre-screening candidates, to preparing for and ultimately interviewing top job seekers – the hiring process can be prohibitive for small businesses.
If you are an SMB looking to hire, you may be looking at a long, expensive process that could take up to 40 hours and $18,795.25 per candidate, according to a recent infographic from GetHired.com.
