Best Sites for Employers to Post Job Openings

Employers, are you reaching the best pool of employees possible in your search for viable candidates? Posting job opportunities on some job boards can be like screaming into the void. Attract the best employees and start getting resumes from people you really want to hire by utilizing these great job posting sites.

Craigslist.org

It’s free to post and you can select from several work categories and locations you’d like to target. More and more reputable companies are getting their ideal candidates on this open job site. Craigslist is especially good for creative industry job openings.

Indeed

A site that combs postings from numerous other job networks with a fantastic search option. It's free to review resumes, but there is a CPC charge to post job openings. It might be worth the charge if you SEO your position correctly.

LinkedIn

The career networking site combines social networking with your professional resume. On LinkedIn, instead of filling out your favorite quotes and movies, you post work experience and skills. You connect to former co-workers, employees, employers, and classmates, and invite them to join your network or your company. There are also job search boards for posting new jobs, but charges do apply. There are several different package rates to look into.

Dice

If you are in the market for technological help and want the best of the best, Dice is a great place to start. Not only can you post jobs for a small fee, but you also enlist the aid of job search agents. These agents scour thousands of resumes for the perfect employee for your business and email you these candidates daily. Job agents do come with a hefty price tag, though, so check your hiring budget before proceeding.

Facebook

There are several different ways to utilize Facebook to find employees. The easiest might be a simple blurb in your personal status update to see if anyone in your network is interested in a position. To make a more professional attempt at finding employees, create a Facebook fan page for your company. Utilize the fan page to post openings and company happenings that will entice potential candidates. Job-focused Facebook applications exist, such as Inside Job and Work for Us.
