If you’re looking for top talent for your company, you will need to stand out from your competition and make a great first impression. In most cases, you have a limited amount of time to sell your opportunity to a job seeker, so how can you entice someone to join your team?
Have an elevator pitch prepared. That’s right, it’s not just for job seekers. It’s also for employers who need to impress quality workers. Your pitch should be no longer than 1-minute in length. Focus on the top selling points to keep job seekers engaged and excited.
Here are a few things to add to your pitch:
- Share any career growth opportunities. What does that look like at your company? Many job seekers don’t have a way to grow within their current companies, so they look elsewhere. Tell them how you invest in your employees.
- Explain your employee benefits. Share information about healthcare, vacation time, employer-provided education benefits, and any other benefits that might put your company first on their list.
- Brag about your company culture. If you have an amazing culture and positive employee morale, brag about it. Share stories of past parties or upcoming events that will make the job seeker want to be a part of your company.
Have your elevator pitch ready at all times. You never know when you might run into someone who’s perfect for your company. Maybe even have it typed up in a one-page document that you can share via text or email. When you hire the right individuals, your business will improve productivity and profitability.
