Small Business Recruiting and Hiring Guide

From NECTjobs, which offers a FREE "collection of resources and introductory articles will help guide you on your journey in recruiting new employees for your business."

Depending on job market conditions, a single job posting could receive hundreds of applicants. That’s both good and bad. It’s good because the higher the number of applicants, the wider the prospective talent pool becomes. It’s bad because a higher number of applicants means more clutter.

A large selection of candidates increases your chances of finding the best fit for your business. With so many candidates, you can stack up their resumes against one another and find the best of the lot. This scenario has significant advantages over a job posting with only a handful of applicants to choose from.

Receiving a large number of candidates requires more effort on your side. Hundreds of job applications necessitates a lot of sorting to find top talent – After all, golden candidates may be buried at the bottom of the pile. As you can imagine, sorting applications takes time. In such situations, it often becomes difficult to see the forest for the trees.
