Advertising communicates the firm’s employment needs to the public through media such as radio, newspapers, television, and industry publications.

Private employment agencies , often called “headhunters,” are best known for recruiting white-collar employees in exchange for a fee paid by the employer. Public employment agencies are operated by each state, but receive overall policy direction from the U.S. Employment Service. Public employment agencies have become increasingly involved in matching people with technical, professional, and managerial positions. One notable advantage is that they provide their services without charge to either the employer or the prospective employee Executive search firms are organizations that locate experienced professionals and executives when other sources prove inadequate. The key benefit of executive search firms is that they target ideal candidates. Unsolicited Applicants- If an organization has the reputation of being a good place to work, it may be able to attract qualified prospects even without extensive recruitment efforts Open houses are a valuable recruiting tool, especially in times of low unemployment. During an open house, firms pair potential hires and recruiters in a casual environment that encourages on-the-spot job offers. Open houses are cheaper and faster than hiring through recruitment agencies, but may attract a large number of unqualified candidates. Event recruiting involves having recruiters go to and sponsor events that are attended by individuals the company is seeking.
