Simple Hiring Tools to Make the Recruiting Process Easier

Make your hiring process efficient and effective by following these steps


We understand that recruiting and hiring the best candidates can feel overwhelming and like another full-time job. We’ve created a simple marketing approach to reaching potential new employees with these easy steps so you can focus on doing what you do best in your practice.  

Decide on your recruiting method. You can use different sites like LinkedIn, Indeed, and ZipRecruiter to help find the most qualified candidates for your practice. If you’re looking for a new OD, reach out to our partners at VSP Premier Pathways™. Whatever recruiting tool you decide to use, be sure to check it daily and decipher what candidates could potentially be a good fit.  

Create a job listing. Your job listing will be the first introduction of your practice to a potential candidate. Here’s an example job listing template:  

  1. Clear and concise job title  

  1. Opening paragraph that states your practice mission and an introduction to your company culture 

  1. Summary of the job description 

  1. List of responsibilities  

  1. Required qualifications 

  1. Benefits that your practice offers to staff 

  1. Optional: Contact information.

    1. Most hiring websites will offer a messaging feature to communicate with candidates, but if you are open to them contacting your directly, include the name of the hiring manager, email, and phone number. 

Share the news. Using the downloadable graphics below, let your patients, staff, and others in the industry know that you are hiring. Hang posters in your practice, share on social media, and send newsletters out that inform your patients and staff of the positions you are recruiting for. You never know who might know the perfect candidate for your practice! 

Be flexible. The recruiting process can feel time-consuming, but if you utilize the hiring platform resources and allocate a certain timeframe per day, it can be much more efficient. If you are unable to add this to your schedule, work with a staff member to help make this process simpler. 

Communicate with qualified candidates. Once you receive a resume that interest you, be sure to reach out right away. It’s important to respond in a timely matter and communicate with qualified candidates to ensure hiring the perfect match.
