Social media has transformed how businesses recruit today. Consider that, on a monthly basis, more than 288 million people use Twitter and 300 million use Instagram. Even more, about 890 million a day, use Facebook.

Companies that use job boards are familiar with the phrase “post and pray,” which refers to placing a job on an employment recruiting website and hoping that a qualified driver responds. These $300-$500 job postings that last 30 days do not guarantee that you will get a qualified driver to reply, let alone see your posting.
