Anyone use e-blast to recruit new employees or create awareness that you are hiring?

Our company is actively hiring for several positions and has not had much luck through typical recruiting sites i.e. careerbuilder, monster, etc.  We would like to see if we might get some referrals by letting our peers know (they are the best source for people specifically in our industry) and I was wondering if anyone has used Constant Contact tor this purpose.  We have even thought about offering an incentive for anyone that brings in a candidate that we actual hire.  

 

Any thoughts, suggestions, or examples would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

Hi Deena,

I have not tried the e-blast for hiring because the person responding would be one of my customers. I may not hire them which could cause hard feelings and I would loose the customer.

Surprisingly, I have had great success with our local "craigslist".  I get qualified and over qualified applicants for my retail business and a ton of them. I usually have to cancel my ad by the end of the day.

Best wishes!

Hi Deanna,

 

I had to delete my previous statement because sending out recruitment emails via our system is actually against our terms and condtions. My apologies for not being on top of my game yesterday and sending out a tweet regarding your question. I apologize for any inconvenience.

 

Thanks for your understanding!

We have used this several times.  The response was great.  Not only did they know about our business they also loved our product.  A great way to start with new employees.
