Hiring? Our signs can help.
Business is booming and you’re ready to expand your team. Before you interview and hire the right candidate, you first have to get word out that you’re hiring. Our signs can help make sure the best candidates come calling.
Staffing can be a constant challenge, especially for businesses with heavy turnover like foodservice and retail. However, good help can actually be easy to find if you know how to attract it. Our custom-printed signs are proven to be effective at attracting new applicants.

Make an impact
If you want to get the word out about employment opportunities, place a custom-printed sign near busy traffic areas and support it with other signage in and around your business or storefront. With this multi-layered approach you’ll catch the attention of both drivers and foot traffic while giving the impression that you’re invested in recruiting and retaining only the best employees.
Trying promoting with addition supporting signage like:
- Window decals
- Coroplast signs
- … and more!
Even though many applicants these days search for employment online, a bold yet simple “We’re Hiring” sign is effective at recruiting candidates at a local level.
When you place a “Help Wanted” sign inside your business or right outside it, the majority of people who see your sign will be direct customers. Choosing a candidate who is already familiar with your product or service can help with training and retention.
Candidates who live nearby are also likely to be swayed by the prospect of a short commute, which works in your favour when scheduling coverage for various shifts.
By advertising near your place of business you can also take advantage of word-of-mouth recruiting. A customer may see your “Apply Now” sign and then reach out to a friend who they know would be a perfect fit for the position.
A well-placed sign can be the difference between attracting potential candidates and attracting the right candidate.
Recruit the best talent
Even in times of low employment, good employees can be hard to find. Here’s how to attract the right candidates.
Pick the right location
First of all, no one is going to respond to your ad if they can’t see it. We recommend placing big, bold signage near high-traffic areas. Outside your business near the street is an ideal placement to drive curious candidates from the street to your storefront. Remember to reinforce your intentions by displaying supporting signage proudly on storefronts, windows, and inside your place of business.
Project the right image
You can customize your “Help Wanted” signs any way you’d like – with photos, graphics, and as much or as little information as you want. However, there are simple best practices to keep in mind to make sure you’re projecting the right image.
- First, make sure your logo and your company’s name are displayed prominently.
- Ensure your sign is big enough to be seen by viewers as they drive by.
- Attract attention with bright, colourful graphics in higher contrast hues.
- Consult with a designer to avoid errors that may project an unprofessional image.
Choose the right message
The best message is the simplest message, but that shouldn’t stop you from adding in key information. It’s important to include where potential candidates can submit an application or resume, plus any other relevant information.
The most common phrases used are “now hiring”, “help wanted”, and “accepting applications”. For career expos and hiring events, terms like “hiring fair”, “job fair”, or “career fair” are direct and familiar.
If you’re looking for something a little different, try:
- “Work with us.”
- “Grow with us.”
- “Come aboard.”
- “Join the team.”
- “We want you!”
If you’re looking to advertise a certain position, be specific. Instead of “Now Hiring” try:
- “We’re hiring line cooks.”
- “We’re searching for a new receptionist.”
- “Join our award-winning firm.”
Lastly, create a sense of urgency to motivate people to apply right away. Add a phrase like:
- “Join us today.”
- “Don’t miss out.”
- “Let’s chat!”
To make your ad even more enticing, include details like:
- Salary or hourly wages
- Benefits and paid vacation
- Company-specific perks
- AIPP applicants welcome
