I know our members in tax season are thinking “reading a blog from Margaret is the LAST THING I WANT TO BE DOING RIGHT NOW!” But trust me, this is important. It’s about how to find your next hire.
We are going to start a big social media campaign for Montana accounting jobs starting on May 1st. We know you need to hire and that will be a big focus for us in 2017 with this campaign in the spring and another in late summer.
Last fall we did a MontanaConnection social media campaign for the first time and had great exposure for Montana accounting jobs. But just like any promotional campaign, success won’t happen overnight. We need to build our brand and name recognition and establish ourselves as a legitimate job site for accountants and CPAs looking for a new job. We need to sell not only the job itself but our lifestyles, our opportunities, our cities . . . we need to showcase why a job in Montana is worthy of a big move.
So I’m interrupting everyone’s busy schedule now to urge you to get those job openings posted before May 1st! Any job posted between April 17th and April 30th won’t be charged until May 1st, giving you an extra couple of weeks’ exposure at no extra cost. The more jobs we show on MontanaConnection, the more viable career opportunity our out-of-state target market will see it as.
You can find more information about MontanaConnection and post your job online at https://www.mscpa.org/careers.
Thanks for taking time to think about this. If you have questions about our upcoming campaign call me, email me . . . I am here to answer your questions. Your input is invaluable.
