By YEC

In the modern digital era, employers and job seekers have countless ways to connect. So how do you know which listing site, job search app, or networking method is best for finding your next hire?

To find out, we asked a panel of Young Entrepreneur Council (YEC) members to share their favorite way to source high-quality candidates.

Q. With so many different ways for job seekers to advertise their skills, which system for finding qualified candidates do you prefer, and why does it work so well?

1. LinkedIn

LinkedIn sparks many great conversations, job offers, and even friendships. What I love about LinkedIn is that its users are usually in work mode, so it is easier to start talking about your field or your expectations in the future, and it feels very natural and positive for both sides. Potential candidates definitely need a power profile on LinkedIn that highlights their skills and experience. —Brian Condenanza, Fluo Shoes

2. Upwork

Our company uses Upwork.com to find qualified candidates. We hire them first as part-time contractors and give them a task related to the position we need to fill. We will monitor their work and efficiency to determine if they are qualified for the position. Once deemed qualified, we will hire them for a more permanent position. —Bryan Kesler, CPA Exam Guide

Their video interviewing platform is easy to use and share which allows me to easily conduct informative interviews with individuals in any time zone to our mutual convenience. —Bryce Welker, Accounting Institute for Success

Finding local organizations like LaunchCode and partnering with them has helped us reach great candidates that we might have otherwise overlooked. —Duran Inci, Optimum7

5. Internships.com


I prefer Internships.com because the college students are hungry and they are in the transformational point where they want to grow. This is the perfect way to mold someone to do exactly what you‘d like them to do with your leadership and your time. If you want someone who could potentially stay with you long-term, then this website has the candidates you will want to reach out to. —Sweta Patel, Silicon Valley Startup Marketing
