Recruiting and finding volunteers may not be such an easy thing to do! As a hostel owner and manager, you have many things to do during your day, not to mention worrying about selecting volunteers.
And of course, when we talk about a hostel’s atmosphere an important factor is having worldwide staff. But how do you find the perfect volunteer from anywhere in the world? A few tweaks to your profile can make a huge difference and help you on this journey. We want to make your life easier so why not give it a try?
Here are a few tips to capture the attention of the right traveler:
- List your profile describing your vibe with stunning pictures. Volunteers want to know as much as possible about you and your place (or as we like to call it, their “home away from home”).
- A well descriptive and concise volunteer position along with your requirements (minimum age, gender, region, language) will help you to attract the right volunteer for your place.
But how do you select them?
- Volunteer's Profile: Check the traveler's background information, pictures, endorsements, even their Facebook interests to get to know them better.
- Chat: Interact with the volunteers by chatting, asking for video applications or documents like CV's, forms and travel confirmations.
Besides that, think about what kind of information you think is important to ask your volunteers. Every place is different so take a few minutes to think about what your ideal volunteer would be to find the right fit?
