Thank you!

There are several different methods of recruitment available to a business owner or manager who is looking to hire new staff. The method you use will determine how far your advertising reach will be and how much money you will need to spend. Of course, you can combine methods to reach the maximum candidates to fill your needs.

Options

Internally - Many employers chose to recruit from within. You already know the capabilities and dedication of your current employees. They are already a perfect fit, familiar with the company and loyal. When you hire internally, you are telling your employees that you have confidence in them and value their contributions. They also feel empowered by knowing that they can rise above their current position in your company.

Advertisements - Newspapers, radio and mini-boards are a good way to promote your business, especially if you include your business statement.

Networking - Friends, colleagues, non-profit managers and other business owners can be an extremely valuable source for references.

Agencies - Employment agencies have a large variety of clients and will shortlist them to make sure you’re contacted by the most suitable candidates. Don’t forget to contact your local labour board, local Ministry of Community and Social Services representative and agencies who specialize in clients with disabilities, such as the Neil Squire Foundation.

Local Resources - Communities generally have an amazing amount of local resources, if one knows where to look. Everything from the Chamber of Commerce to the Adult Education Centers in your town or city can be a valuable resource. Best of all, most of them are free of charge. For ideas of local resources you can access, check out Local Resources for Low Cost or Free Advertising.


Once you know what your options are, you can decide which ones work best for your recruitment needs and move on to preparing your interview strategy.

      Yes; more and more, people are relearning the value of communication :-D Networking sounds scary and like a lot of work, but really, it's just being at places and event where like-minded folk are and chatting with them. Learn a bit about others, talk a bit about your biz and exchange biz cards. People are sometimes surprised to find out how much they have in common, how willing others are to help and just how much they have to offer to others :-)

      From what I've heard, networking is becoming more popular all the time both as a way to get a job and a way to find new people.
