Years of experience and relevant experience
Current and previous roles types
Education level, relevant certifications or training

Networks: reach out to your personal and business contacts and industry networks
Do you or does your business have a LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram account that you could post about an expression of interest job opportunity?
Do you have any unique online communities where employees and industry leaders go to network and connect? Linked in and Facebook have many industry groups

A great employer brand attracts 50% more qualified applicants and reduces cost-per-hire by 50%. Not to mention companies with strong employer brands hire one to two times faster.
