The search for potential candidates through expensive job advertisements plays a marginal role. There aren’t so many positions that could have been filled through this media. Nevertheless, if you decide to publish a vacant position in print media, we would recommend Gazeta wyborcza.
Social networks recruiting

There are more than 9 million users registered. The second social media that is very popular among Polish professionals is GoldenLine, which is a Polish social network and which is their equivalent of LinkedIn. GoldenLine has one million registered users and is all about professional networking. Of course we cannot forget that LinkedIn is being used as well and currently has about 700,000 users in Poland. The usage of Twitter is rather limited and it appears to be used by the politicians and by the marketing departments mostly. The other networks, like Google Plus or Instagram, are rarely used.
