Once you’re ready to share your employer brand with job candidates, Dice has many ways you can promote your brand to technologists across the U.S. This is by no means a comprehensive list, but rather some ideas to get you started.
Tap Into Dice’s Network of Technologists
Reach even more qualified candidates by leveraging Dice’s digital reach to widen your net. With more than 800,000 subscribers to the weekly Dice Technologist newsletter, Dice provides companies with an opportunity to send branded, customized emails targeted to relevant candidates that fit your needs by location, skills, title, experience, education and more. You’ll be able to track your results, test and optimize for maximum effectiveness, too.
Social media can often be a candidate’s first impression of your brand. Dice can help you make your first digital impression with a candidate a good one when it counts most. Through Social Solutions, Dice can help your company reach potential candidates with the kind of background you’re looking for. Utilize Social Boosts on platforms like Facebook and Instagram to drive quality traffic to your job posts or run large-volume offsite Employer Brand campaigns to drive candidates to your landing pages. In both instances, we’re using our resume database to ensure your posts are targeted by geography, experience level and skills to reach the right candidates for your needs and encourage engagement with your brand.
Attend a Dice Virtual Career Event
Dice offers a calendar of virtual career events spanning multiple areas of focus, including women in tech, specific skills and a range of industries and locations.

And with an average visit time of 7 minutes and 20 seconds, you’re getting your employer brand in front of an extremely engaged audience.
