Going Online to Recruit Employees

Most CPA firms and businesses who hire CPAs and accountants know that finding good employees to fill positions takes time and patience. Placing newspaper want ads is one way to go, but in today's fast-paced, technology-driven world, going online to find employees makes sense for many reasons.

Over the last two years, according to the American Management Association, just over half to 70 percent of all companies across the United States advertised jobs and recruited employees over the Internet. Why? Cost and convenience. For example, an online ad on one of 5,000 online services, including the very popular Monster Board, runs around $300. In addition, these ads can be changed during their duration.

Experts advise those who post jobs online to ensure that interactivity is provided, such as an e-mail address to send resumes, and even including your own company Internet address so recruits can conduct their own research.
