When a campaign is set up on Facebook, your job advert will be featured on the newsfeed or sidebar of your desired audience’s screen, giving your vacancy and brand exposure to potential candidates who might not have seen it otherwise. You can brand your advert to show your corporate imagery and company culture.   Facebook allows you to be visually creative; try including images of your practice or embed employee testimonials.


  1. You can set up in depth targeting – When creating your online job advert, it’s important to target your audience using specific digital media language. Facebook advertising takes things one step further and allows you to target your entire advertising campaign to a specific audience by controlling who sees your advert. Facebook also allows for more general targeting, such as setting a location radius, or current job title.


  1. You can build your own talent pool – There may be occasions when your dental practices don’t actually have specific vacancies but you want to still generate awareness of your employer brand for future recruitment plans. You can run a careers promotion campaign on Facebook, with the objective of driving traffic to the careers page of your website and collecting speculative applications for future hiring plans.
