Ten Top Tips for AdvertisersComments Off on Ten Top Tips for Advertisers
There is a lot of competition between clinics to fill practice vacancies for vets and vet nurses at the moment. These are Paula’s Ten Top Tips to consider when advertising:
- Boost your extramural studies program: you may pick up a new graduate vet;
- Have a strong vet nurse team: boosting the role of your nurses makes your practice more attractive to potential applicants;
- Reply promptly to applicants: communicate in a timely manner;
- Sort out your social media: applicants are looking for practices with a strong online presence;
- Put your team online: pictures of your happy, sociable team can play a role in attracting applicants;
- Give everyone a lunch break: this will impact on your team’s work/life balance and outlook on their job;
- Undertake regular social activities: encourage your team to be socially engaged with each other and their community;
- Promote your location: applicants are looking for somewhere they can settle so provide them with reasons why for your area;
- Talk openly about the full benefits package: advertise your salary range on offer; and
- Pictures of equipment are to be avoided: this is unlikely to attract applicants as most practices use similar equipment.
My current rule of thumb is to take the emphasis in the ad off what you want from your new employee and instead put it on what you are offering.
