Consumers receive numerous tips, advice and even job posting samples to aid you in your recruiting process through the Peer Mentor Program.
Excerpt from “Steps of the Hiring Process”:
Advertise: Successfully attracting the right people involves using multiple sources. There isn’t one single source that works all the time, so be open to advertising in various ways. (See attached “Quick Tips on Finding Personal Assistants.”) If you’d rather not be swamped with calls, you may have applicants respond to an e-mail address. (Also see attached “Sample Job Ad.”)
