Get More of the Right Applicants

Have you been having a hard time attracting the right job applicants for the open positions at your company? KB Staffing can help! We provide staffing solutions for a variety of industries in Polk County, and our years of staffing experience have given us some clues as to what brings the right people to the table at the right time.

Attracting the Right Attention
First, it’s important to recognize that we live in an ever-changing and rapidly evolving world. The way we hire and the expectations that new employees have upon entering the workforce are dramatically different from what they were just a generation ago. KB Staffing has seen these changes occur first-hand, and we want your company to keep up with the times when it comes to hiring.

As you write your job posting, be sure to accurately represent the responsibilities and duties of the position. Be clear and concise so applicants know what the position actually entails. Avoid vague titles such as “Team Member.” That gives so little information that it is likely to be skipped over by many qualified candidates.

Carefully consider what qualifications you are asking for in a listing. Bear in mind that a candidate who doesn’t tick off all the boxes in terms of those qualifications may have outstanding soft skills that make him/her easy to train and more suited to your company culture than a theoretical “perfect” candidate who looks great on paper but doesn’t actually exist in your list of applicants.

Finally, take a look at your application process. Is it overly lengthy, redundant, or filled with requests for unnecessary information? It’s time to face the reality that a lot of job seekers are simply burned out on spending hour after hour filling out applications only to get silence as a response from employers. Streamline that process!
