Okay, I have to say, I'm having a terrible time finding employees. My business in currently growing by leaps and bounds and I can barely keep up. The first employee (an Independent, we can only use independents who will maintain their own Erros and Omissions insurance), was a DISASTER. Had to stop using her. I am finding that the people who are presenting themselves are college educated (I am not, only little bit of college), but are quite clueless. I am getting people with degrees who can't write a compehesnive, understandable report (we investigate accidents and have to report on the same). I am finding that these people have no writing, punctuation, grammar skills, etc. Organization is also a problem, as we maintain files on a 30 day basis and they must be kept on this "diary", reporting every 30 days.

The last person who was doing work for us had a great deal of experience, but was horrid. We pay well, so it's not like we're drawing from the bottom of the barrel here (although we don't offer insurance, just can't yet) So what I am asking is this... how do you find good employees? Monster is $500 to review resumes. Not a small chunk of change. But what I am doing is yielding people I wouldn't let babysit my kids, let alone do investigative work for me.

Any words of advice??? I am in utterly desparate need of a secretary/typist/assistant type person as well as a claims ajudster. Is moster worth it? Any alternatives?
Thanks guys...
