When it comes to building your business, few things end up being more important than your staff.
It’s your staff who are in the thick of it day in and day out, and you want to know you have the right people in those positions.
The best thing you can do is find a recruitment agency who you are confident with to take on the task of finding the right talent for your team.
Develop a relationship with the recruitment team and pretty soon you’ll have a great staff behind your company.

Job seekers used to worry their social media profiles could keep them from landing their dream job. And for good reason.
After all, photos of keg stands don’t exactly scream, “future executive.”
Shying away from social media, however, is not the answer.
With recent surveys showing that 92% of companies and recruiters use social media to find job applicants, today’s savvy job seekers leverage social media to their job hunting advantage.

Even if you’re not actively seeking work, it doesn’t hurt to be prepared.

Using social media for recruiting can be highly effective when done smartly.
The days of the mailed paper resume are long, long gone. But even the emailed variety is dying a slow death. Sure, interested employers still ask for a traditional CV once you are at the interview stage, but finding a job by sending out a cover letter and resume to dozens of companies is pretty old school. 93% of companies now use LinkedIn for recruiting purposes -- for not only searching for candidates, but also for publishing opportunities.
In other words, get thee to a computer and polish your profile.
