Arlington Heights business law attorneysLarge, multinational companies seem to always be hiring. Proof of this can be seen in a typical Walmart where touchscreen application kiosks have replaced resumes and cover letters. Of course, a large company like Walmart may have a constant need for new employees, but it is also better insulated against hiring mistakes. As a small business owner, hiring the wrong person can be quite costly, and the process itself can consume valuable time and resources. Fortunately, there are some things you can do to prevent expensive mistakes and to make the recruitment process more efficient.

Know the Landscape

You may think you know where to find the best candidates, but are you certain? Before posting a job opening, it is a good idea to do your homework on where to find qualified applicants. This could include various online job posting sites, as well as local colleges, universities, and trade schools. You may be surprised to learn that there are more qualified candidates looking for jobs than you initially thought.

Be Specific About the Job

When you post an opening, you should already know what that employee’s role in your company will be. Avoid the temptation to create a general listing. Instead, be specific about the duties of the position and how the new  employee will fit into your culture and business plan. Be sure to list required skills and expectations, as well as possible challenges. The best candidates will be motivated to take on these challenges, giving them an advantage over the rest of the applicants.
