Retail stores, malls, movie theaters . . . they’ve got it made when it comes to hiring. Or it may look that way to brick and mortar businesses that don’t have the same kind of visibility. How do you get get people to apply for your part-time openings?
First, they need to find you.
Help Part-time Employees Find You without a Help Wanted Sign
Hanging a Help Wanted sign is a traditional method for brick and mortar businesses to find help. But some people would argue that Help Wanted signs aren’t good for business – they subconsciously indicate that you’re understaffed or may suggest that you can’t keep good employees.
The other downside to Help Wanted signs? People need to see them. If you don’t get a lot of foot traffic by your location or a lot of window views, a help wanted sign isn’t going to get applicants in your door. It’s time to turn to technology.

Use Technology to Get Part-time Employees to Notice You
People who post jobs that way often get a flood of applicants, some of them good fits for the job – if the position gets noticed at all. If you want to keep showing up at the top of Craigslist, you need to repost. That’s not in the your budget or schedule.
So maybe you turn to social media. Facebook ads. Snapchat hiring campaigns. YouTube videos to show off company culture. Tweeting about #parttimejobs. If you’re adept and active on various social media channels, it is a great way of tapping into your network or gaining more visibility. And a strong online presence helps people understand and stay connected with your brand.
But if you aren’t active on social media or keep your social presence customer focused, social media may not be the best tool to let candidates find you. And if you need to hire quickly, as most businesses do, trying ramping up your social media efforts in a rush isn’t the best use of your time.
You need newer technology that makes life easier. You want technology that helps you find the right people – and helps the right people find you – fast. You need a part-time job matchmaker. That’s where HipHire comes in.
