We’re hiring again, looking for someone with foreign language skills and, of course, great English! The team is asking their friends, and friends of friends. So far that’s been our very best source of new employees. All the people we hired last year were from contacts our existing employees have and all are proficient in at least two languages. This time we need a ‘less common’ language so are doing a bit more to publicize the position. Today we posted the opening at two local colleges. Of course the systems they use are different, but both were fairly easy for registration and then job posting. We also contacted a local school which specializes just in foreign language instruction. They’ll be distributing the opening to students and staff.
Our team may still be the best source for another candidate but it will be interesting to see what comes of the other postings. We wouldn’t mind being flooded with resumes soon!
