One way is to showcase your company culture and what makes you different from your competitors. Explain what your philosophy is and what your values are. Show your team members in action working with one another. Let candidates know how you relate and interact with your customers. It’s all about being authentic and likable and painting a picture of your company’s personality. Doing so should strike a chord with many candidates and pique their interest.
In terms of mediums, here are some of the best to use:
