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.
