Quality Applicants/Candidates - Where do you post and find the best results? We are in Houston, TX if that helps.
Is anyone having trouble getting quality applicants or over qualified, for an entry level ($40k-$55k doe) FSQA roles? We have posted on LinkedIn, Indeed, etc. People either have non-relevant, no experience or have been a manager for 10 years. Where do you suggest posting?

Thank you!

By definition, entry-level means no experience. Perhaps you mean relevant food experience but no QA experience? In which case, how is your pipeline from Ops into QA? Can you be leveraging that more?

Otherwise, I'd evaluate your job posting. Maybe you can tighten it?

I am a big fan of building connections to local community colleges and leveraging them as pipelines of entry-level talent.
Suggestion for posting:
Yes, we are having similar challenges with FSQA and SQF Practitioner role that we are currently trying to fill. We will be trying to post in the asq.org career section soon.

Can you elaborate a little on the basic quals you're looking for? For example, are you seeking someone with a 2-year degree, etc?
In my experience, LinkedIn can be fairly invisible to the entry-level jobseeker. Since they're new to the job market, they often don't have a great sense of how to use it. And, since they don't yet have much to show in their LinkedIn profile, the algorithm struggles to put relevant jobs in front of them; your job gets lost in a gigantic and chaotic cloud of entry-level jobs.

If you require and/ or prefer some type of a credential (a degree, a certificate, etc), I'd suggest posting the job directly with whatever institutions award that type of credential.
