The hiring process can be challenging. There are numerous things to take into consideration when you are looking for a new employee: budget, time frame, essential skills and experience, cultural fit. The list goes on.
However, recruitment should be celebrated. After all, if you are expanding your team your company is growing!
One of the first steps when recruiting is to decide on exactly who you are looking for and to create a compelling job description.
Simple enough right? Not necessarily.
The job advert will represent your company and your hiring needs. A well-written job advert – with a focus on the required behavioural characteristics – will attract the right applicants.
If your advert is not clearly targeted, you may have wasted your time, or it may lead to the wrong hire. Hiring mistakes are costly!
