The tower climbing industry is one that takes skill and a high-level of attention to detail, not to mention all of the training required. The thing every employer will inevitably face is having a position to be filled and either not getting enough qualified applicants applying or having everybody and their brother apply, although the latter allows the resumes to be discarded until a stack of potentially good candidates remains.
When you post your listing through towerclimber.com some unique advantages become available that do not occur on other job sites. The first of these is that we are specialized. We work exclusively with those in the tower climbing industry so we know how to get your listing out to the people that need to see it. Some sites specialize in everybody, which is not a bad thing on its own, but it makes it harder for qualified applicants to sift through all the open positions in order to find yours, no one wants to check 50 job sites, it is discouraging.
Towerclimbers.com works with over 100 jobs sites. Some of these are specialized and others are some of the biggest names in career searches. Qualified applicants may only be on two or three sites, if your ad is not on one of those sites, they may miss you completely. We also post your ad on relevant websites and social media sites. A poll conducted in 2010 showed that social media is where the younger generation goes for their job leads. They ask around and check out social media to see if the company is a good fit for them. They feel that a name they have seen before is more reputable than one they haven’t.
Managing all of this, the job postings, the social networking and the website ads without assistance can cut into the time that should be devoted to running the other areas of your business. Our team specializes in this. It is what they do and they are good at it. This means that there is one less stress on your managerial plate and more time can be spent bookkeeping, training, handling employee relations and all of the other responsibilities that are in place. There are only 24 hours in a day, so delegating some of these responsibilities is effective time management.
Sometimes an inbox full of resumes may not be the desired goal. Towerclimbers.com has a compiled list of thousands or resumes listed geographically. This list grows every day. So, if you are the type of manager that likes to sift through resumes without letting the world know that your company is hiring, this technique has a distinct advantage. The resumes can be looked through when it is convenient, even before a position needs to be filled. This way, you can have an idea what kind of candidates are out there and contact them prior to there being an open position.
Think of how amazing it would be to be able to have a replacement employee within 48 hours because a candidate was already found. Often, a position will stay available for weeks because it takes time to set up interviews and review the interview of the applicant and make an ultimate decision. When there is an open slot for so long, the other employees must work longer, sometimes reaching into overtime to keep the business from falling behind schedule. It is much more cost effective (especially if you know a position will become available soon) to have someone that can be trained sooner rather than later.
Probably the greatest thing about our compiled list of resumes is that we do not block anything out. Some sites will let you see resumes but have to pay for the contact details. What good is it to see resumes if you can’t hire the person? We feel that once you find the ideal candidate you should be able to take the next step without hassles. It saves you time, money, and keeps your stress levels down.
We offer many options based on your needs because we know that no two businesses are exactly the same. So instead of wasting time and money trying to do it all yourself, let us handle part of it for you. After all, we are in business for tower climbers.
