My post has been up for a few weeks and I have yet to receive any applicants

There is a team of staff behind this email making sure our off campus employers are getting what they need in a timely manner.
I've hired someone, now what?
Once a final candidate has been offered the job and accepted, we recommend that the employer contact students who applied to their job but were not selected. It is a best practice to email those not selected and thank them for their interest but let them know that the position has been filled. This can minimize further communication with applicants once the employer is done recruiting. Also, please make sure our team removes the posting by emailing email@example.com to request the posting be closed.
How do I post a job related to babysitting or childcare? (A guide for parents)
If you are a parent interested in posting a job for BU students, you can complete the form at the top of this page.
After filling out the form, the Fleishman Center team can contact you if we have any questions about the posting prior to getting it in the hireBING powered by Handshake. This system reaches all Binghamton University students at the undergraduate and graduate level.
The form asks how you would like to be contacted by applicants and if you want to see a resume and/or cover letter expressing interest in the role. Students will see the posting in hireBing and then submit their documents directly to the contact information the family has chosen to submit.
Help with questions:
The first question on the form is "Organization Name," as this may be confusing for families, we recommend they post the family name as their organization such as: "The Cody Family."
The job title field could be "Child Care Provider" or "Babysitter" for example.
Wage can be left blank, but if they you an hourly rate we can list, you will get more applicants by listing it and we recommend this approach.
If you don't know if you are on the bus line, we recommend they answer no to this question.
Work schedule - if you know the days/times you are hoping to regularly get help can be listed there. If it is for someone you would like to have on call, you can list evenings and weekends as needed for a work schedule. They can be as concrete or not as you wish. The more concrete the more likely you will get applicants who are available when you really need them.
Number of hours/week can be left blank or be filled in if you know a range.
Job descriptions can be brief such as:
Supervise, ensure safety, entertain and care for our three children ages 3-11 Monday-Friday from 2:30-6 p.m. weekly in our home.
If you only want to consider students who are upper class or graduate students, you can list this here.
Or, specifically, if you want to hire someone with experience working with children with Autism spectrum diagnoses, you can list this here.
If the babysitter needs to have a car and NY State Driver's license to transport the children to and from events, they can list this here.
Mostly, experience and educational qualifications are mentioned in this field. If you don't have any, we suggest writing: Open to all Binghamton University student applicants in this required field.
