Is anyone else experiencing a lack of candidates for entry level positions? My company is small ( less than 100) and I need to hire 4 new employees this month and 2 next month due to growth. I hate to admit, but I am out of ideas. We currently use Indeed for our postings, have not had any success on other job boards. The candidates that are responding are either too qualified, or appear to be resume posting  merely to show they have applied for a position We've done job fairs, newspaper ( yes believe it or not) and worked with the Unemployment office with no success.Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

  • Yes Carol, we have had the same problem with entry level positions.  I have also posted on Indeed, Careerboard, Facebook, LinkedIn, and yes newspapers.  I'm running out of excuses for my managers.  I feel your pain!

  • Don't forget about Employee Referrals! 

  • We are having a similar problem - I need to hire 40 people for the spring/summer season and am not getting applicants!  We are starting an employee referral program and I have already have 3 leads !!
