Alternatives to Job Advertisements

Q: Besides placing an ad, what are some alternative recruiting sources?  

Advertisements are one of the most common but, least effective sources for recruiting. The success of advertising can be improved by targeting job specific publications rather than the local newspaper. Some alternative recruiting sources include: attending local trade association meetings and conferences, developing relationships with local high schools and colleges, using personal networks of family and friends, attending local job fairs, working with outside placement agencies, and having in-house job fairs. The Internet is quickly maturing as another cost effective way to source qualified applicants.
