Jason, I just wanted to let you know I actually had two outstanding applicants come in. I confirmed one was through Indeed.com. The other is coming in to visit later today, he found us on the internet as well, I will attempt to ascertain precisely where. That is definitely a good start we are off to.
“Two outstanding applicants, good start, expect to hire an electrician…”
“…provided several qualified candidates…we hired a new Controller…”
Our company has engaged Bessire and Associates a few times in the past two years for the “search and screen” solution, and I would highly recommend Jason and his team. In our search for a Controller, we had not found a viable candidate on our own for the first 60 days. I reached out to Jason, and in one month from the date he started looking, we had no less than 5 qualified candidates. All of his staff seems to be “fired up” for sourcing candidates and are always very professional. The questionnaire before the search began was thorough enough to really narrow who’d be a great fit for us and put a spotlight on the right type of candidates for our company. It was an easy and beneficial process from start to finish.
“The process is finished…and we hired!”
“…received more responses than imagined and hired 2 positions from the same ad.”
Thank you again for helping us write an ad for an Operations Manager to use on Careerbuilder that was almost too good………we got more responses than even you expected.
After looking over all the candidates, we found someone who is a great fit and loves working with us. He lives outside Charlotte, and said our Ad caught his attention.
In addition to finding the Manager we needed, one of the final candidates we interviewed said he really wanted to work with a company like ours and kept in touch for any related position we might have. We will probably hire him this week for another position in operations…..two hires from the same ad.
Your knowledge of what recruitment strategy is needed for each type of position is extremely valuable. When to filter the ads and when not to etc. I highly recommend that anyone have that discussion with you.
I appreciate your personal care and attention.
“…within the past few weeks, we have successfully filled nursing, sales and administrative positions …”
I wanted to alert all franchisees to a great opportunity available to you for recruiting support. Bessire and Associates, a national recruiting firm, has developed customized on-line postings for all Sona locations to use. Jason Bessire and team are able to utilize tools on on-line sites such as Monster, CareerBuilder, etc. that are capable of greatly increasing the potential universe of applicants that see our postings. Further, the cost passed on to franchisees is less than what these sites typically charge for postings.
We have had great experience in attracting talent in both our Charlotte centers utilizing Bessire’s on-line support – this includes Consultants, Front Office Coordinators, and Nursing staff.
Better postings than what we can do ourselves, at a cost less than what we would pay doing this on our own, has certainly become our #1 recruiting tool. I invite you to talk to Jason and learn more about this opportunity.
“…we hired 2…we are VERY PLEASED…”
Bessire engaged a full service RPO solution and in 3 weeks was able to give Apple Rock the top candidate resumes that matched their specific profile. We are very pleased! We didn’t even have to look at “B” candidates – the A’s met the profile that we needed. We hired 2 Account Executives from this process. One had been in copier sales with a marketing background, was an excellent fit and is already on board.
“Jason is the best…top shelf advertising…”
Jason is the best. We use him for all our monster ads. We just hired two of the best sales-people we’ve seen in years. It’s rare I speak up on others behalf but Jason is top shelf.
“We have used Jason (Bessire & Associates) to hire our last 4 Reps.”
We have used Jason Bessire (Bessire & Associates) to hire our last 4 Reps. He is not a head hunter. He provides solutions (Developing Monster ads, Sales Recruitment events, etc.). We found that using his firm was much more efficient and gave us more control in the hiring process at a much better cost than using an actual head hunter/recruiter. I don’t know if you have any openings for Sales Reps, but if you do, Bessire can help you.
