Is social network a good place to recruit people for a startup business?

    I recently started a new business and I am looking for professionals ( Registered Nurses ), so I tried to send messages to several women through a dating site that I joined. So far, NO RESPONSE. I thought I would get some interest, because I am offering them a part of my business. Any thoughts?

    You're looking for professional medical employees through a dating service?

    Why not try a local employment office that caters to nursing staff?

    edit: Damn, I can't make that any bigger.

    Maybe try searching Facebook for some nurse profession related groups and go from there. A dating site is not the place to be looking for business partners.

    Yeah, with facebook...they have groups. I'm sure they have a "Registered Nurse" group there as well.
    If not, I agree with someone above, and do it in your local area.

    If you want have a successful business, the best place to recruit people would be people you know personally, so you have some accountability for their work ethic, reputation, education, etc

    it can work for opening marketing but like what has been said above you need to be able to get the right traffic. Twitter can help find nurses rather quickly if you know what your doing.

    I think you should stick to conventional methods. Classifieds, craigslist, field-specific websites, etc

    you have to make the facebook fan page for the requirement of Nurses it will help you to search Registered Nurses for new business. And also help promote your business
