One of the most important, yet most difficult, activities for a business is finding and keeping the best employees to make their business grow and prosper. The prospect of finding the right person for the job can be overwhelming. The US Department of Labor (DOL) has recognized the need for helping employers with this process of recruiting, training, and then retaining a skilled workforce.
The DOL has expanded the CareerOneStop website to include a Business Center page with a suite of online resources to assist employers with this seemingly daunting task. The site includes tips about how to recruit qualified candidates through local American Job Centers and provides employment projections. Additionally, the site offers access to local training and educational institutions, a catalog of occupational certifications, and a tool to help employers translate the military training and skills of returning service members into specific civilian occupations. The CareerOneStop Business Center is available online at: http://www.careeronestop.org/business. The website also provides information for job seekers to find education and training providers and to conduct a comprehensive job search.
When recruiting for your organization, it is important to have a solid, non-discriminatory process to funnel out the most qualified applicants. From job descriptions to interview questions we can help you.
