How to find the ideal employee with Oxilia?11 November 2020
Can you hire the ideal employee online using Oxilia?
Majority of the veterinary clinics encounter difficulties when hiring or looking for temporary staff. Finding the right person for the right job is not always easy, especially when veterinarians and animal health technicians are rightfully looking for a better balance between their careers and their personal lives. Many even choose to include travel as part of their lifestyle and earn a living at the same time.
So, how do you find the perfect replacement or the temporary worker to complete your team? You can of course use classifieds, traditional networks and post an offer in your social media accounts. You will then receive applications that you will have to filter by analyzing the CVs and conducting numerous interviews. The time and money spent on hiring a new candidate, even for a temporary position, can be enormous for a veterinary clinic, even without taking into account the fact that classifieds and employment sites can cost a fortune, without yielding any successful results.
Oxilia offers you a more creative, humane and optimal approach to find veterinarians, animal health technicians and support staff that will meet all of your requirements.
