Explore ways you can use LinkedIn to find volunteers and fill key roles.
The first step to finding quality candidates for your nonprofit is posting your job or volunteer opportunity on LinkedIn. Get the word out about the role you’re looking to fill by following these simple steps.
Go to linkedin.com/job-posting or click the “Work” icon in the top right-hand corner and select “Post a job” from the dropdown menu.
Type in the title of the job you’re hiring for. As you type, suggested job titles will appear to help you gauge the most common titles used for the role.
Add your nonprofit name under “Company” (if you have this listed as your current employer on your profile, it will be filled in automatically).
Note: This will associate the posting with your nonprofit’s LinkedIn Page. That means it will appear in the list of open roles in the “Jobs” tab of the page and people will be able to click through the posting to visit your page and learn more about your organization.
Select your workplace type (on-site, remote, or hybrid) from the dropdown menu and add a location (this will show your post to job seekers in the area).
Select the job type (full-time, part-time, contract, temporary, volunteer, internship, or other), then click “Get started for free.”
Consider adding screening questions to help you evaluate a candidate’s skills and ability to do the job. If a candidate doesn’t match your requirements, you can set up an automatic rejection email to be sent to them to save you time and ensure candidates aren’t waiting to hear back from you.
Note: You can add custom questions or select from the library of suggested questions.
When you’re ready, click “Post job for free.”
Note: You can only have one free job post open at a time.
