Question: Is Craigslist a viable option to post a hiring advertisement for a new hygienist?

QUESTION: Is Craigslist a viable option to post a hiring advertisement for a new hygienist?

ANSWER: Yes, you can still use Craigslist to post your job announcement; however, it shouldn’t be the only place you look for new employees when hiring. You are going to want to spread the word to as many places as possible to increase your chances of finding the best fit.

Here’s a few things to remember:

1. All the good hygienists are probably working somewhere else already, so you need to have a culture or a reason for someone to leave their current job to come to your office. Sell your office and company culture in your post.

2. Tell all your dental reps that you are hiring, as they are the ones that go in and out of offices all day long and know who is happy in their job or who might be looking to leave.

Welcome to Office Manager Job Duties. Manager Job Duties is the first video series in the Office Manager course and in this series we take a closer look at your role and responsibilities in the office. In addition to learning the key responsibilities of your role, you likely have a significant role in hiring new staff. The seven videos in this series walk you through the expectations of this role and the entire hiring process from writing the job advertisement to the employee’s first week on the job. Front Office Rocks recommends that you complete this series with Office Manager Responsibilities first. Next, complete Writing a Good Job Advertisement, Reading Resumes, Phone Interview, Interviewing, and Interview Management Style which will assist you in navigating the hiring process.
