You need to hire someone, so where do you start? There are a few places which are great for finding quality people to help grow your company.
LinkedIn is a great place to find serious professionals. LinkedIn allows you to post jobs, discussions, and connect with members. Since it is so professional, you can look for quality candidates in the group message boards and on the site itself.
Twitter is also great for finding candidates, especially those in marketing, tech, and communications. You can search by a specific hashtag to find those in your field and see if they are looking for new opportunities.
Pinterest, while not as common, also shows people primarily photographers, designers, and fashion industry professionals. They may have a professional board or even follow your company.
Networking events are another great place to find high-quality candidates. A great candidate will be able to hand you a professional business card and be aware of industry news. The added benefit of networking events is you can chat with them a bit before heading into more serious business topics, so it gives you a little more insight into their personality.
Referrals can also be a good source for finding candidates, but tread carefully. You want to be able to find a quality candidate, not just a fast hire. So you need to properly vet out the candidate even though they are referred by an existing employee. Make sure to check their employment history and vet them like any other candidate.
With these tips, you should be able to find proper and high-level candidates who can engage your business in the propery way.
