How To Attract Passive Candidates with Social Media


Putting targeted adverts and niche blogs in front of the very candidates your business wants to reach

How would you like to entice passive candidates in your market by putting your hiring messages right in front of them? Or perhaps saturating your market with a well-written blog post that goes viral. The candidates these campaigns reach don’t need to be actively considering a career move. They don’t need to have followed your social media profiles. If they're on social media you can reach them. Just select your audience and advertise.
