I am willing to bet that most of you have had success using the Internet to help you find good employees. If you have not used the Printing Impressions
job posting site on PIworld.com
, I recommend you give it a try. Unfortunately, many employment Websites are too general and not often monitored by people in our industry. This job site is specific to what we do.
I recently assisted one of our franchise members with recruiting a production manager, and we used http://jobs.piworld.com
. Within two weeks of posting the job, we received more than 40 resumes. I was amazed at the quick response from qualified candidates. Many were still employed, but some were either downsized or had left their jobs, not an uncommon situation in today's soft market. The site allows you to specify the location, so most of the respondents were in proximity to the business. Some were out of state but willing to relocate.
Job seekers can also post their resumes on the site, in addition to employers. If you have not checked it out, I recommend you do. Based on my personal experience, it is a hiring tool that works.
