Hiring at LLCs and small businesses

If you have recently started a business or formed an LLC, the odds are good that you’re looking to hire. And, since the economy has put many professionals out of a job, you probably have a lot of qualified candidates from which to choose. So how can you pick the best new employee?

Shifting through a stack of resumes higher than a computer monitor isn’t easy for any business professionals. Some larger companies use online application processes that parse resumes before they ever hit the boss’ desk, but a lot of smaller enterprises can’t afford to invest in this kind of technology. In fact, doing so could cause small businesses to miss out on excellent candidates simply because their resumes don’t conform perfectly to a specific standard.

Instead, small businesses and LLCs that are looking to hire should focus on taking a holistic approach to applicants. Hiring managers at these companies should look for applicants who will contribute the most to the company – not just those with the most experience or the longest resumes. Small businesses can afford to be more flexible in hiring than large corporations because employees will have more access to hands-on training and perform a larger variety of tasks at businesses with fewer workers.

The first step to finding the right people to work at a business or an LLC is running the right ad. Business owners who ask for what they want in creative, eye-catching ads are likely to see applications come pouring in.
