Hiring in today's climate is tricky! 🥴 With the pandemic still very much alive, applicants are less enthusiastic about returning to work or working the frontlines. 
 
Though that won't stop us from hiring and providing you with some tips and suggestions to finding the candidate you're looking for! 💪
 
*What we’re seeing right now is what we’re calling a “labor market pinch” 🤏. Indeed, ZipRecruiter and other job boards are reporting that postings have dramatically increased, but the candidate pool has shrunk. Here’s the latest report from Indeed:*

Tips & suggestions: 
  • Syrg - We’ve launched an integration and partnership with Syrg for candidate re-engagement campaigns through HigherMe, and negotiated a special rate for HigherMe clients: https://syrg.io/higherme
  • Templates - Ensure all of your Job Templates have post-pay rates, clean job titles for a specific job, and have between 3-5 pre-screening questions (check here: https://app.higherme.com/admin/templates/). Also check this out: https://higherme.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/4405472437011
  • Jobs - Turn off posts you are not actively hiring for. Having extra jobs posted will dilute your results.
  • Keywords - Utilizing keywords throughout your job description where possible. In your area, “hiring immediately”, “teen” and names of competitors are popular. A sneaky way to include competitors without being too obvious is to say “Prior experiences at brands like Competitor A, Competitor B an asset!”
  • Boosts - Boost positions where you need them. You may need to utilize more budget than normal. We’ve seen the Cost per Click for Indeed campaigns increase over 50% in the last 2 months - it’s fiercely competitive right now!
