What is the benefit of using social media?
The best approach to hiring is to constantly build relationships that you can rely on when it's time to hire.

It also provides job seekers with an accurate view of your company and core values. Posting job openings on social media is easy and free. Information spreads quickly across online networks. Even if no one you know is a good fit for the current role, they might recommend a strong candidate.

Postings.com helps organizations by providing a unique platform to communicate directly with prospective employees through many channels concurrently.

It is simple to add to the company website to your profile.

Can multiple people use the same account?
You will be provided with one username and password per account. Multiple people can log-in to the same account. Postings.com makes it easy to share resumes with your co-workers, as well as make notes and rate the candidates throughout the hiring process.
