you’re getting the right person for the job. You might be doing a few mistakes
when posting these vacancies that led to the failure of getting
the right candidate.

for you to write bullet points of the requirements and qualities of the
candidates that you’re looking for to fill the job. It’s crucial that you
provide detailed information. You want these applicants to evaluate their
skills first and decide if they will pursue the application.
Not providing details about your company
If you don’t
like to post information about your company, you can at least provide the link
to your official website and social media pages. During the
interview, you can ask questions about the company. If the applicant can
provide specific responses based on the information on your website, it means
that the candidate researched well about the job. It also shows genuine
interest for the post.

filter the candidates well. You want anyone who thinks about applying for the
job to reflect first before submitting a resume. Therefore, you provide too

to apply especially if not suitable for the job. The problem is that you end up
turning away even those who have potentials to do well. You can provide more
details about the job later as you further the selection process.

on one site
There are too
many job posting sites available these days. Maximize these sites and make sure
that you spread the word as much as possible. Use social media pages too. The
good thing about social media is that people can share the post to anyone who
needs a job. The recommendation and referral could help boost the chances of
hiring the right person.
