Finding the best employees to help grow your business to successful levels is overwhelming, yet important. While the process of recruiting can be stressful, it’s also a headache to try and determine where to post the job openings. Which platform will offer the best outcome? Where will the most quality candidates see it?
The best, first place to start is online. Making sure you post your openings on your website, social media accounts and job boards is a great way to make sure hundreds of people see it.
One of the best benefits of posting jobs online is recommendations. Those that aren’t looking for work may see the posts and share it with friends and family who are. Often, recommendations are the best avenue for finding quality employees.
The biggest concern with online job ads is whether or not you should use free or paid options. While the biggest decision factor in this is personal preference and budget availability, there are a few other things to consider before determining which is right for you.
Many websites offer paid services to help you share ads on social media. While this can be useful for those who haven’t the time or manpower to continually share ads, it can also be costly, especially if you pay for the ads, in addition to the sharing service, you’ll be spending quite a bit.
Consider doing your own sponsored post on Facebook and Twitter, instead. Create your own ad and then work with their sponsored ads to help continue sharing.
Many websites also charge per distance from your location. For example, LinkedIn is a very popular site for posting jobs. According to their website, “The geographical location determines the cost of a job posting. To see how much it costs to post a specific job, go to the Post a Job page and specify the job location at the bottom of the page. Once you enter the location, you’ll see pricing options for a single 30-day job posting as well as the option to purchase a 5-pack or 10-pack of Job Credits for a discounted price.”
