Everyone loves a smart hiring campaign: designing catchy ads, scouring applications, conducting out-of-the-box interviews and ultimately finding the right candidate. It’s a heady feeling indeed. If you’re a small business, however, things may not quite be that rosy.
Here’s the scenario:
A key team member’s resigned – you’ve got less than two weeks to find a replacement. That’s the most likely scenario for hiring in small companies in general – the unexpected gap in the business is something that could hurt the organization if not quickly filled!
Problems arise with the fact that people in small businesses are already working at full stretch in their daily tasks, meaning that it’s uniquely difficult to get the hiring process off the mat. There’s also the lingering notion of hiring a bad fit that can make people drag their feet. After all, the only thing worse than a gap in a small business is an ill-fitting cog.
A knee jerk reaction to that would be to hire rapidly enough so that in the worst-case scenario of a misfire, the hiring process redux can happen swiftly. However, rushing the recruitment process without careful planning is risky too.
The answer may lie in taking a step back and setting aside some dedicated time to plan and work through the hiring process.
Know What You Need Before You Start Advertising
If you’re in a rush to advertise, there’s a risk you won’t be clear about the role you’re trying to fill and the person you’re looking for.
Clearly defining the roles and responsibilities associated with it, academic and work experience requirements, and any personal identifiers would help both you and candidates in determining if they are the right person for the job.
There’s a flipside to the rush as well – Some companies go all out with the details, creating such lengthy tomes that applicants are deterred from applying as they feel that they barely meet all the given requirements. Specifically, applicants observing too many responsibilities beyond core role duties, would be unlikely to apply to such a job. You would end up missing out on some talented individuals, definitely not what’s needed at that point!
