Advertising was virtually shut off unless you put up the cash. However, the good news is that Facebook advertising is very cheap and once you place some dough, you’re in like Flynn.

Since 86% of the most qualified candidates for open positions are already employed and not actively seeking a new job, you need to be creative about getting your brand in front of them.
