Do your recruitment and hiring practices tell your hospitality story? Is it quickly apparent to an outsider that this isn’t just another job? If so, how? If not, why not?
Do you need to announce (post) job openings in the same place everyone else does? Why?
Does your culture and reputation attract the best prospects on it’s own?
Do you actively build relationships in the hives where your best prospects live/work/learn/play?
Which way to you lean with these practices?
- Application Process/Paperwork vs. In-Person/Conversation
- Resume/Q&A vs. Prospect led Presentation
- HCareers/Monster vs. Hive Immersion
Hiring for hospitality is much harder than posting a job and hoping applicants find you. It takes months, perhaps years of cultivation and nurturing of the right audiences.
