The next step is to ensure that candidates find it, and read it.

If you want your job posting to shine, you need to ensure it gets posted to the right place. Otherwise, you won’t attract the right fit.

Unsure of where to publish your job ad? We can help.

Here are 3 of the best places to publish a job posting:


As the only social media site designed specifically for professionals, LinkedIn is an automatic go-to for job seekers. As these candidates update their profiles, the system automatically connects them with promising job opportunities – but yours is only among them if you submit the posting to the site.

Job seekers can also search job postings on LinkedIn, even if they’ve set their profiles to indicate they’re not actively looking for work. This feature makes LinkedIn a great way to connect with passive or curious candidates, who are happy to stay with their current employer unless a better opportunity comes along. LinkedIn allows employers to demonstrate that they are the “better opportunity.”

Search Engines

Job-focused search engines have largely replaced the want ads for job seekers, particularly in today’s mobile-driven era. Engines like Glassdoor, Monster and Google Jobs now host thousands of job postings and receive millions of views from candidates looking for just the right position.

If you’re worried your job posting will get lost in the search engine shuffle, don’t be: These sites have powerful search capabilities that let candidates sort through postings by job title, key duties, location, experience required and more. These tools match your posting with candidates who are looking for exactly the same set of skills, requirements and experience that you are.

Staffing Agencies

Staffing firms curate their own job boards, which draw daily attention from job seekers targeting specific locations or industries. Don’t hesitate to partner with a staffing firm that can help your job posting receive the attention it deserves.
