You could put an advertisement in a local newspaper or if you live in a large city you can put an advertisement in all of the local papers. When posting in a newspaper you want to be sure that you list the education, qualifications and experience that you want from a future employee. If you do not put this in the paper you may end up with many unqualified people coming in for interviews.

If you are hiring in a town that has a college or even has a few colleges then put signs on every bulletin board at every college. Many college students need work and if you are hiring for a job that some of them may be majoring in then you will have plenty of employees to choose from.

Some small businesses put up a sign in their windows saying that they are now hiring. You may even want to do that even if you are advertising in other ways. You could even talk to your local news station about putting it on the news for you or call the local radio stations to have them get the word out for you.

Word of mouth is also a wonderful tool in helping you find the right employees. You can also ask other businesses if they mind you putting up fliers so that people can see that you are hiring. You could try sending out mass emails to random people. Even if the people that receive the email are not interested they may know someone that is looking for just the type of job you are hiring for.

Another great way to advertise you are hiring is by putting up a billboard in front of your business with the "We are hiring" in big letters. A job placement agency can also be a very wonderful way to find the type of employees you are looking for. Many people use job placement agencies to help them find jobs.

You just let them know what type of skills you want, how much experience you are looking for, and tell them the qualifications you want in an employee. These agencies are great at finding the perfect person for the job you are hiring for.
