How Can I Use Social Media to Advertise My Job?


HiringThing is integrated with prominent social media applications like LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and Google+. You can post your job openings onto your social media accounts to get additional exposure for your positions.

Interesting Factoid: According to a recent survey published by career transition and talent development consulting firm Lee Hecht Harrison, only 11% of job seekers do NOT use social media in their job search. That means you might be missing out on up to 89% of qualified applicants if you don’t take advantage of social media to advertise your job posting(s).

Don’t wait! Get those job postings live on your social media sites now. Keep reading for step-by-step instructions on how to publish your job postings on your social media sites.
