If you’re struggling to find reliable truck drivers, you’re not alone! The United States is going through a significant labor shortage, and the trucking industry is taking heavy blows. With the holiday season around the corner, now is the time to start hiring before it’s too late. Keep on reading to learn about our different places where you can start advertising your open truck driving jobs.
There’s no doubt about it; the power of social media is real. A recent study by Glassdoor found that 79% of job seekers use social media when conducting their job search. During the lockdown, truck drivers took to social media to share their daily experiences, and a new wave of trucking influencers was born.
To reach more active job seekers, try posting your open jobs on social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, and even TikTok. Recently, we have started weekly virtual job fairs for logistics job seekers. We’re able to reach thousands of people every day which speeds up our hiring process. Schedule a free consultation with a Spectra360 hiring expert to learn how we can help you do the same! To get started, click here.
Indeed, CareerBuilder and Monster are just a few job boards that job seekers check on daily. If you want to attract qualified talent, posting your jobs on a job board could help find skilled talent. Chances are you’re already doing this, so our suggestion would be to review your job postings by looking at them from a potential candidate’s point of view.
Are your job descriptions clear? Are you offering employee benefits? What about incentives? You can think about including driver type, routes, and salary info into your job descriptions to get more qualified applicants. Putting yourself in potential candidates’ shoes can help you answer why you do not see success.
At Spectra360, we have a free job board open to clients and the public to post their logistics job openings. To list your job vacancy, click here.
