There are many sites on which you can post your job opening and each has its unique features. Some specialize in a particular industry like Monster and others have wide sources of candidates such as CareerBuilder. The challenge I have found with these massive sites is that I actually receive TOO MANY resumes! It makes it incredibly difficult to sift through the candidates to find the ones you actually want to talk to. I have found great success using LinkedIn job postings to get enough candidates to choose from, but not so many that I am overwhelmed. Additionally, it is extremely cost effective to post a job on LinkedIn starting at only a few hundred dollars.
Another tactic I use is to pay to promote the job. You can pay a certain about per click and set a maximum budget so you don’t break the bank. I have found that $1.50 per click and a $200 budget has been plenty to get what I need. If you compare the total cost of under $500 doing it this way to some of the other alternatives, it is a bargain and a fairly painless process.
