Two Ways to Find a Caregiver on HireMyCare.org
One way to use HireMyCare.org is to run a search to find a caregiver near you, but did you know you can also simply create a job posting and let employees come to you?
It’s that easy. Just log in and click the green “Post a Job” button to get started.
Why Should I create a Job posting to find a caregiver instead of running a caregiver search?
You can do both! But here’s why posting a job is a great way to find caregivers:
- You can create different postings for the different types of care needs you may have. Need transportation to the doctor’s office and also someone to help with your personal care? Create 2 distinct job postings and let employees decide which one best suits their skills and availability.
- A job posting works for you 24/7. HireMyCare.org is still growing, so you may not find what you’re looking for right away when running a search. You may have to return to the site several times as more caregivers in your area sign up. Why not post a job once, and let caregivers search for you? You’ll receive an email alert if someone has responded to your job opening.
- You can close out the posting when you have filled the position, and reopen the same one if you need to fill it again in the future. Sometimes it’s hard to find a caregiver that will stay with you for a long period of time. Many Care Seekers find that they must re-hire for the position several times each year. When you create a job, you can close it out when you have the position filled or re-activate it if you need to replace your caregiver, then modify the posting and re-activate it if your caregiving needs or scheduling needs have changed.
- Like a search, you can tailor your posting and indicate your preferences on 20 different criteria so that caregivers know just what you’re looking for. If you don’t have strong preferences or requirements on some of the criteria, such as caregiver education or experience for example, leave those sections blank so caregivers know you are open and willing to train them to do the job.
