Came across this article in Door & Access Systems Insider magazine.  As a Navy vet and a retired door dealer, this touched me and speaks volumes to the real heart and soul of the garage door industry.  The "Bad Bobs" in the industry, and you know who you are, should read this article carefully and maybe finally understand that we treat people how we'd like to be treated.  Thank you to Crawford Door of Wilmington for shining a light on something that should happen everyday in our industry. https://www.dasma.com/articles/feature/GoodBobStory_Win2018.pdf
On Thursday, November 15, 2018 The Apple Group conducted an IDA sponsored webinar, ‘Recruiting New Talent’, which focused on assisting garage door dealers with finding new employees in the tough job market. There were 60 people in attendance for the hour long seminar, indicating the timeliness of this very hot topic. Dan Apple conducted the session and covered topics including Internet advertising, using the new  GarageDoorJobs.com  job board, looking for talented people in unusual places, recruiting veterans, interviewing and on-boarding new employees. The response from those in attendance was very positive and each attendee received a seminar handout and special discounts on job ads for  GarageDoorJobs.com  or any of Apple Group’s online training modules.

Writing an "eye grabbing" job ad requires a little thought. Mostly, you have to put yourself in the job seekers position.  What would you want to see? Simple, easy to read and concise is better. Remember, your ad will not sell the applicant on the position, that's your job during the interview.  Here are 5 tips to consider. KEEP IT SIMPLE  Make your postings easy on the eyes and easy to read. Use bullet points, boldface, italics, numbering, and paragraph breaks to do this.  CUT TO THE CHASE  It may be tempting to list every minute detail of the job to ensure you get the most qualified candidates applying. But, as tip number one above states, simplicity is better. Pick out the top five to seven duties and list those, preferably in a bullet point or numbered format. SELL IT  Don’t forget to sell yourself. Explain why the candidate would want to work for you. Is there something particularly unique and/or awesome about your company? Include it. If you’re willing, add a salary range and what sort of benefits the job will have. CONTACT INFO  Make sure you have contact information or a link for interested candidates to easily apply. Put a link for your company website, or even better add links to your company’s social media pages. USE GRAPHICS  Bring your ad to life by adding company photos of your facility and employees.  Put a face behind the name. Perhaps include a brief video about your company. Strategic use of graphics will get you noticed and set your ad apart from other employers. Want to know more?  Click here for our job posting tips page.
