The best way to find an employee suited for your needs is to ensure that you properly advertise your position. When you are creating your profile, be sure to outline all of the required skills a potential employee should possess to qualify for the job. You should also provide a general description of what they would be doing once hired. This will help ensure that employees are given a full picture of what the job entails and will also help you get more qualified matches.
Start by outlining the type of care you are seeking. Is it full-time, part-time, occasional? What kinds of duties will they be responsible for? Be specific. Also, if you require an employee to have particular certifications, you should list this upfront as well.
Next, be sure you are honest about the wage you are offering for these services. If you can only pay up to a certain amount, add this into your profile so that only employees who are willing to accept the wage you are offering will reach out. Keep in mind though that you are required to pay at least minimum wage. Advertising the rate of pay will save you both time and effort, so you are not spending hours messaging someone who is not willing to accept the amount you can offer.
Lastly, be yourself. Don’t try to make your profile sound like everyone else. Show your personality and make your profile stand out by highlighting who you are and what makes the job unique. Showing employees your personality upfront will help ensure you find a good fit and will not clash with them once hired.
