Schrock Radio Recruitment Advertisement Seeks Computer Repair Technician

Schrock Innovations successfully hired a new Web Development Director last week thanks to a radio recruitment advertisement we ran on KIBZ-FM, The Blaze.

Brian Augenstein was hired away from Phoenix Computers in Beatrice, NE to head the company’s Web Development Division.  Brian is a very promising employee who is laying important groundwork for Schrock’s future expansion into website development, hosting, and application development.

Normally if we would have advertised that position in the paper we would have had to search for the proverbial needle among dozens of applications from unqualified people.

Let’s Do it Again!

The radio recruitment ad worked so well that we decided to run a second one seeking a Computer Repair Technician.  For some inexplicable reason experienced computer break / fix technicians are hard to find in Lincoln Nebraska.

We have had a post up on Craig’s List for weeks, only to get applications from people ranging from auto mechanics to fry cooks.  We can’t hire a poorly skilled technician to work on our customers’ computers, so the next step was to drop an ad in the paper – or try the radio again.

I decided to give radio another try.

What Schrock is Looking For

You can listen to the radio recruitment ad we are running the week here.

In the ad we describe the kind of person we are looking for.  Schrock technicians are never allowed to give up on a problem.  At times this leads us to work directly with developers and engineers at companies like Microsoft or Kingston to resolve problems on the bleeding edge of technical support.

When a Schrock technician is confronted with  an un-patched problem, they don’t quit and wait for a patch.  They become the catalyst that gets the patch created.

In fact, Schrock is so selective about the kind of person we employ that two of our senior technicians have been courted by Google.

This position pays up-to $30,000 annually plus benefits.

How Can I Apply?

If you are a technician who wants to take the next step in your career, fill out an application on Schrock’s website. Its nice to be part of an award-winning team that will challenge you to rise to the next level of performance.

We will not contact your current employer unless you allow us to do so and we will arrange an interview around your work schedule.

    I am pleased with the outcome of the first ad and how you have been able to get a WDD and the second series is bound to be as successful as the first. All the best.

    Radio really seems to be doing the trick for you Thor. I love the double whammy whereby your business gets exposure whilst searching for suitable candidates. It sure works for me!

    Perhaps the lack of qualified responses is due to the peanuts being offered as salary. I’m sure there are qualified computer repair technicians in Lincoln, but $30k as a max salary sure isn’t tempting.

    Glad to hear that the radio ads are working out. It is an interesting strategy how it kills 2 birds with 1 stone. Some online job posting methods also help in bringing a bit of extra promotion.

    While I would love to apply, unfortunately I am located in Los Angeles. Either way good luck with your search. Wish you the best. Loved you on TNIM btw.
