Best practices for QR codes for hiring

Looking for more applicants? QR codes let you tap new channels for leads. Check out some best practices

  • QR code CTAs

    Clear calls to action

    Without a clear Call to Action, people will be less motivated to scan the Flowcode. Including copy, like “apply now,” means more people will apply for your position.

  • Pretty QR codes

    Match your brand

    No more boring black-and-white QR codes. Include your logo, choose a shape, and add artistic flair around the code to make them pop.

  • Dynamic free QR codes

    Use dynamic codes

    Flowcodes never expire and the destination can be changed at any time depending on what position you’re hiring for.

If you already create physical marketing ads at your storefront, elevate them instantly by configuring them with a QR code for hiring. Simply let passersby scan to learn more about the position and share their application and resume in seconds. If you aren't already using offline marketing, diversify how you share your open roles on more than just LinkedIn and job listings.

People simply have to scan and go with a frictionless solution like Flowcode.

Help prospective applicants by automatically connecting them from "help wanted" signs to a curated online portal that shares your company mission and culture, open roles, important logistics details, and contact information to reach out to your team. When you create a curated landing page for hiring, such as a Flowpage, you can provide all prospective applicants with information at their fingertips and the ability to get started on applying and outreach instantly. Flowcodes and Flowpages are also always dynamic. From the portal, you can change where people are directed and which links are available.

FAQs for QR codes for hiring

QR codes can be linked directly to job application forms online. QR codes make it easy for potential employees to begin an application as soon as they’re made aware of the open position. By allowing potential hires to instantly begin the process with a scan of their phone, you lower the chances that they’ll forget about the opportunity once they return home. In turn, this lowers the chance that you’ll miss out on quality candidates.

QR codes can be placed anywhere a potential applicant might see it. This could mean in the window of your business or on the side of a vehicle. If you’re attending a job fair you can print the codes on to flyers and put it on the front of your booth. You can get creative as well, putting the application code on t-shirts or temporary tattoos for existing employees.

First you’ll need to select a QR code generator. Different generators come with different costs and stipulations. You’ll need to do your research to determine which generator best fits your hiring needs. Once you’ve settled on a generator you’ll just have to make an account if necessary, enter the required information, and then create the code. Be aware that some codes might have a limit on how many times they can be scanned whereas platforms like Flowcode allow you to create your first code with unlimited scans for free. These codes are also dynamic, which means that you can create one code for one position and then alter the destination once you’re looking to fill a different role.

If you want greater insight into who is scanning your codes and when and where they’re scanning for them, you can opt for a QR code generator that includes analytics. Depending on the generator, this may come at a cost or it might be included with any codes created through the platform. If you think analytics might be important to you, consider using a generator that offers them just in case as you’ll have to create a new code if you switch to a different generator. Platforms like Flowcode offer a basic plan that comes with a free dynamic code and includes first party analytics for free.

The best way to encourage potential applicants to scan your recruitment code is explain the advantages of the job in a compelling and succinct way. It’s also wise to use a clear and simple call to action alongside the code like “scan to apply.” The more appealing the opportunity and the simpler it is to apply, the more candidates you’re likely to receive.
