Private Practice Recruitment Checklist: Step 6. Pick a Job Board

Private Practice Recruitment Checklist: Step 6. Pick a Job Board

This is Step 6 of the “Private Practice Recruitment Checklist” series. See all articles in the series here.

Step 6. Pick your job posting platform(s)

The almost-final step in the private practice recruitment checklist is posting your job advert. But of course, as with everything else in this checklist, even the job posting step needs to be approached strategically.

That starts with knowing where to post your ad. As many job boards cost time and money, it’s important to get the most out of it by choosing the right platforms that your potential candidates are likely to visit.

Depending on your allied health discipline, there most likely is a niche job board. If you’re not sure, ask your colleagues or your association. Or a simple Google search may suffice.

However, just because there are industry-specific job boards, that doesn’t mean you can’t also post your jobs on generic job sites. How your ads perform depends on various factors and it can be difficult to know what works best. Keep track of where your applications come from and monitor how your ads perform so you can know for next time.

Here is a list of generic job boards you can consider.
