Technician Find, a marketing and recruiting company for independent auto and diesel repair shops throughout the United States has recently announced a new strategy that will attract technicians from Craigslist.com and get them to apply.
Founded in 2018 by Christopher T. Lawson, TechnicianFind.com helps independent automotive and diesel repair shops use creative ads and social media marketing to find good techs faster.
When asked about the new strategy Lawson said, “When I first started working with independent auto repair shops back in 2017, I kept hearing how Craigslist had been the go-to website to recruit mechanics but it had dried up.” Lawson continued, “I would hear shop owners tell me that they would post a job on Craigslist on Friday morning and by Monday they would have 15 – 20 applications and hire a technician the next week. Obviously that’s no longer the case.”
Craigslist.com remains a powerhouse in the online classified space. According to firstsiteguide.com:
— Craigslist receives 190 million visits every month in the United states
— Craigslist contains over 700 local websites
— Craigslist is ranked 39th on a list of websites that Americans visit the most
— 80 million classified ads are posted on Craigslist each month
One average, Technician Find generates over 400 automotive and diesel technician applications each week for their clients and they have recently added Craigslist back into their recruiting campaign structure to gain more exposure for open jobs and generate even more qualified applications.
“Finding automotive technicians is hard so we like to use every resource available to make sure that as many technicians see our client’s job ads as possible. Adding Craigslist back into our lineup has definitely boosted the number of applicants we’ve been able to deliver to our clients.” Said Lawson.
