1. AngelList

AngelList does a great job of attracting top talent with a startup mindset. You can share your mission, funding history and growth goals, as well as highlight your team. In addition to inbound applicants for the roles you post, you can search a large database of potential hires based on salary, experience and more. – Ludovic Huraux, Shapr

2. LinkedIn ProFinder

As an agency that rapidly hires quality freelancers, LinkedIn’s ProFinder tool has been invaluable. You outline the specific project you’re hiring for or skill set you’re searching for, and the top prospects submit a proposal. We found an amazing digital marketer through this tool, and she became a vice president at our company a year later! – Emily Hughes, Loup Digital

3. QuadJobs

We often use QuadJobs for project-specific support or summer interns. We’ve had great experiences meeting talented undergraduate and graduate students who have become part of our team, either temporarily or longer. – Denise Caron-Quinn, In Order to Succeed®
