I’ve already talked about making sure the person you hire is in love with your company and wants to be on your winning team, but one thing that is often overlooked is how you search for potential candidates, and how you post your positions. If you’ve made a name for yourself, people will want to work for you! On your website you can post your positions and go into great detail about both your company as well as the job itself. Even though people think they know your company, spend a little time in the job posting talking about your company culture. What can they expect to experience as an employee? For my production company, my listing would look like this for all potential employees:
- We work very hard, but we play hard too.
- We produce both big and small events, which happen 90% on Saturdays. If you don’t like working late nights or weekends, this probably isn’t the job for you.
- The owner of the company loves pizza and BBQ, so when he buys lunch, you’ve got a pretty good guess on what you’re having.
- We’re passionate about what we do, and we only hire people who feel the same way.
- At lunch we watch episodes of Arrested Development or Community on Hulu. Please don’t apply if you think Big Bang Theory is funnier that either of these two shows… or funnier than any show.
Then get into the job description itself. This is where you set up a broad overview of what they can expect to be doing in the job (in the hiring and interviewing process you’ll go into more detail).
