Find ways to gain more exposure for your open roles.
To reach more candidates so you can fill important roles faster, try these approaches to increase visibility and give your job posts a boost.
Harness the power of your nonprofit's collective network.
Post from your nonprofit's LinkedIn page.
Turn followers of your LinkedIn Page into applicants. After all, some are following your Page because they’re fans of your nonprofit and would love to work for you.
Get followers to spread the word.
Encourage your followers to share your job post with their own network, or send it to anyone they think might be a good fit for the role. LinkedIn is a professional network, meaning many members are engaged and excited about helping others in their network find new opportunities.
Make it eye-catching.
Consider adding images or videos when sharing job posts to bring the job to life.
Encourage your team to share.
Let employees know about the important role they can play in helping to hire their next team member. Provide them with some suggested messaging to share the post to their own LinkedIn networks.
Leverage your leaders.
Connect with your leaders and board members when hiring for more senior roles and ask them to share the job post with their networks.
Use the #Hiring photo frame.
Turn on the #Hiring photo frame on your LinkedIn profile. This instantly signals to potential candidates that you’re hiring, adds the job post to your profile, and notifies your network about the open role. When the post closes, the feature is automatically turned off (or you can turn it off yourself at any point).
Amplify your volunteer opportunities.
Use the LinkedIn Volunteer Marketplace to promote skills-based volunteer opportunities posted on VolunteerMatch. By connecting your accounts, your posts from VolunteerMatch will automatically be posted on LinkedIn within 24 hours.
