#33: The Process For Recruiting Motivated Employees Quickly

Jason Lee from Indianapolis brings up a burning question in our Facebook group about people not showing up during job interviews. How do you get a better commitment from those who respond to your job ads?

Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/896216427196514/

Here’s what we discussed:

0:10 How we deal with people who don’t show up

  • Our own experience running a contracting business with 90% of people who call and schedule for an interview but don’t show up
  • How we have figured out a way to counter that frustration with a solution that has been working great for us for years
  • Taking advantage of the limited talent pool by looking for people who show specific characteristics

4:50 How to tell if someone is more likely to show up for an interview

  • The best times to post job advertisements
  • The significance of applicants that respond first

6:20 Selling your company to job applicants so they stay interested in the position

  • How hiring people is similar to responding to leads
  • Stiff competition going on with hiring people, and how to beat them

8:30 The so-called “intangibles” that certain people possess that will be invaluable to your company

  • Why it isn’t always about the technical skills
  • What qualities you need to look for that will go a long way.
  • How soon hirees should start on the job

So far, this system has worked great for my company in narrowing down on the best candidates. I hope this will give you more insight into the hiring process!
