Hiring Pilates Instructors for your Studio Using the PMA Job Board

September 30, 2020
Author: L. Levy

In a prior job, I served as a talent manager for a technology startup. During the recession, I was fortunate to have an open space on my team. I was excited to get my hands on the resumes of what I thought would be an overwhelming number of highly qualified technical professionals given the state the economy was in.

I shared the open job description on all of the usual sites—Indeed, LinkedIn, and Monster. My wait didn’t last long. My inbox was flooded with resumes within a few hours.

I eagerly looked at the first resume. Not qualified. On to the next; also, not qualified.

There wasn’t a single qualified candidate in my inbox.

The job opening had gotten a good amount of online exposure, but I was reaching the wrong applicants. And to make matters worse, I was now spending time sorting through a stack of resumes that were not a good fit.

Sound familiar?
If you’ve ever been on the hunt to bring top Pilates professionals into your studio, I’m sure you’ve faced similar challenges. Finding a qualified Pilates instructor can be difficult. Where do you look? Who do you ask? How do you find someone qualified?

The moral of this blog post? If you’re hiring for any position, you’re essentially a fisherman. No matter how many times you cast your line, if you are not fishing where the fish are, you’re not going to catch anything.

Eventually, I was able to find the perfect keeper for that open tech position several years ago. Can you guess where I found them? Through their association’s job board.
