In today’s market you need to be focusing in on the passive job seekers, who are more selective. By being competitive with your compensation and benefits package you will pique the interest of those great candidates who are just waiting for the right opportunity to come along before they make their move.
Understand Your Organizational Culture:

Don’t Underestimate the Power of Going Social:
While employers are indicating that the #1 source of quality hires are job boards, social media is in a solid second place. While in most cases signing up for social media sites are cost-free, a strong and effective social media presence requires an investment in both time and money.
