Are you looking to fill a job opening at your dental practice for a hygienist, administrative assistant, or associate dentist? Here are 8 major job listing sites you could use and what sets them apart.
Perhaps the easiest way to find a new dental associate or hygienist is to post your job opening online at one of the major job classifieds networks. Beyond posting your ad, Monster can also help you hone in on the right candidates for the job so you can reach out to them and invite them to apply. The site filters resumes based on criteria you set, so you're only ever looking at the candidates who fit with your needs.
Indeed is another major online classifieds network and a major competitor to Monster. Indeed makes hiring new candidates for your dental practice easier than ever with a simple three-step process. Post your job using Indeed's tips to stand out from other hiring dental practices, and then use the site's tools to review resumes, narrow down your search, schedule and conduct interviews, and extend offers of employment. Indeed has a very flexible payment structure, making it a good choice for smaller practices or solo dentists.
3. American Dental Hygienists Association Career Center
If you're looking to hire a dental hygienist, there's perhaps no better place than the online Career Center at the American Dental Hygienists Association. Your job can be posted for just $75, and you'll have access to search the resumes of thousands of qualified dental hygienists. Jobs get an average of 251 views, and you can manage your applications online through the ADHA Career Center employer portal.
iHireDental is a job listing website similar to Monster and Indeed, however, it serves only the dental marketplace. You can post a job or browse resumes based on specific qualifications. The website also offers iMatch Job Matching, which is a service designed to connect you with personalized job matches according to a set of preferences you select, from dental office administrative assistants to assistant periodontists. iHireDental boasts over 1 million candidates!
DentalPost is another dentistry-specific job board that competes heavily with iHireDental and other similar classifieds ad websites. It allows you to post locally or nationally-targeted ads and search resumes by photo, assessments, and location. DentalPost also has a messaging platform that allows you to connect directly with potential candidates online through an app.
The least expensive package is $99 and the costliest is $299, billed every 30 days. You can also post an immediate temp job for just $59 if you need to get someone in your office as quickly as possible.
Glassdoor is similar to Monster and Indeed because it competes heavily in the classified ads arena. The website isn't limited to just the dental niche and boasts a whopping 67M+ visitors every month. In addition to allowing employers to post jobs, it enables current and former employees to leave reviews about working for a company. While you can't control the type of reviews you get, if you offer a great place to work, your employees will more likely rate you highly, making your Glassdoor employer profile more attractive to top candidates.
Beyond using websites designed specifically to help dental practices find new recruits, you can also use social media. LinkedIn is a social channel that facilitates professional connections between new recruits and dental practices that may want to hire them. To a lesser degree, you might also use Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to source job candidates and advertise openings in your office.
Regardless of how you find your next recruit, it's important to make sure your job postings are engaging, compelling, and informative. Your job descriptions should be well-rounded and give potential hires a good idea of what their responsibilities -- and your expectations -- might be.
