Create a profile specifically for the purpose, or just reformat your personal profile to make it appropriate for business. Then, you can add friends, family and acquaintances who share common interests and careers. Start sharing plenty of positive workplace inspiration and eventually you can begin posting about open positions within your company. Then, wait for the flood of messages to come. You’ll have the added advantage of having some insight into a prospective candidate’s personal life, which makes for the best hires. If you want to make use of online recruitment for your small business, consider using Facebook in addition to the traditional LinkedIn platform.
