Advertising job openings

Question: We are currently having difficulty getting new sales people.  We have placed ads in a major newspaper and a more local newspaper.  One of the ads also came with an online ad.  I even placed an ad with a local state office.  We are looking for new and better ways to advertise our current job openings in the sales department.  Does anyone have any suggestions as to what’s out there that works?  -- Anonymous

We advertise for sales people at the colleges and universities that are around here. These kids are hungry and excited and, though they may not come experienced, they come wanting to learn quickly so they can earn commissions quickly and as a result, become excellent salespeople.

Have you considered advertising in publications or organizatoins related directly or indirectly to the trade? I have come to see that there are numerous trade publications and organizations out there. Any manager worth his/her salt should be a good resource for such materials.

We have used MyCareer.com and have had wonderful success in all areas. And the posting is free. Your might want to try this, it works in our state.

I would have your company start a co-op program with a university near you that has a good sales program. A lot of companies end up hiring these students full time after they graduate. If your company cannot have a co-op program, get a list of excellent sales students that are graduating from the business college.

Cool, good job, i like you site.
i am wishing you a new clients and be happy with your further projects.
