It’s that time of the year again already. Christmas to-do lists are getting longer and you still haven’t filled that position you’ve been meaning to do before the holidays. Here are a few good reasons why you should find that person ASAP before Santa arrives.
1. Avoid the January job rush
If you want your job ad to stand out to job seekers, it’s ideal to post it now before it gets lost in a flood of January job ads when people are coming back from holidays. Getting it out there now will help you in the long run.
2. Attract the early birds
By getting organised and placing the job ad early, you’ll invariably pick up the early birds. It will help attract those persistent go-getters dedicated to finding work before the New Year.
3. Save time
As you know, training new people takes time and you can save time by hiring while business is generally quieter at this time of the year. By getting them to start immediately, get them trained up so they can hit the ground running in 2017. The more reviewing, interviewing, hiring and training you get done now, the less you will have to do when you get back from holidays.
4. Grab those graduates
By putting a job ad out there at this time of the year, you can target many skilled university, VET and school graduates who are waiting online with their finger on the refresh button hoping to get that job before someone else does.
