There are many ways to find new employees for your company. Some of the newer methods employers are using are listed below:

  • Social Media: Advertising and communications strategies are changing rapidly as a result of new social media. Companies who understand and use social media will be in a far better position to recruit more people. These media allow instant access by millions of people around the world. In many cases, you can create your own account and use these sites to let people know about your company and positions you have available. Further information about social media strategies can be found in the "Using Social Media" section of this website. Some of the most popular ones at present include:
    www.facebook.com
    www.twitter.com
    www.youtube.com
    www.linkedin.com
    www.meettheboss.com
  • Special Events: Forums, sponsored events, and charity events can provide recruitment opportunities. Smart employers are always recruiting. Participating in community and charity events creates a positive image of your company, and is a great way to contact potential employees. Attending forums, community events or even being a sponsor gets your name out there and word gets around. Hosting charity events can help create a positive image as well.
  • Internet Recruiting: The Internet is very popular with job seekers, especially young people. There are two ways of using the Internet to find the right person for your company: placing a job posting and using a résumé matching service. Some of the most commonly used sites are:
