If you’re a business owner who has effectively hired employees in the past, then you know
how challenging the process can be. Placing an ad is the easiest part of it. Then you have to handle all of the phone calls, emails, and other inquiries about the position, what you’re looking for exactly, and what you are seeking in your ideal employee. You smile on the other end of the phone and politely explain it all time and time again and instruct them to send their resume and cover letter to you.
At the end of the process, you wind up with a mountain of resumes (especially during the
current economic recession), half of which could be tossed aside with barely more than a cursory glance at them. You’ve effectively spent countless hours simply trying to get to the core of what you’re looking for in an ideal employee. On top of all that, you will end up going through that process every time you have to look for new employees.
How it Works
With iTeleCenter, you can set up a separate extension for callers to hear a recorded
message (one that you record) and you would place this extension in the ad, whether you post the ad online, in newspapers, or other classified publications. When your interested prospects call the number, the recording you make will explain precisely what you’re looking for in the ideal employee and what the job entails. Many times, when people call a want-ad and learn more about the position, they will realize that they are either not qualified for it, or that it isn’t quite what they are interested in.
In today’s economy, you will likely be inundated with people who will take just about any
job and they will offer the same promise that they can handle anything that you ask them to do and that they are quick learners. You don’t have to endure this and the more specific you make your message, the more information that you share with them, the more likely you will have those calls end before they reach the point where they leave a message for you with their contact information. You can also encourage them to fax their resume right to your iTeleCenter number.
iTeleCenter Acts as Your Personal Filtering Staff
Larger companies have entire teams of human resource professionals whose job is to
sift through all of the calls and resumes they receive about a particular position. As a small business owner, you have limited resources and time and iTeleCenter is a great resource to have in your corner. When you have applicants leaving their contact information, then you will know that they’ve listened to the entire message and that they are still interested and might actually possess the skills and qualifications that you are seeking.
iTeleCenter has all of the tools at your disposal to create a professional message and you can even track the effectiveness of where you place your help wanted ads, which will allow you the opportunity to fine-tune your message in the future. After all, when your business is growing, you will need more employees, right?
