The first step to a new hire is to recruit applicants, and one great way to do that is from within your own staff.  Your current employees are already familiar with the company, and employee morale is improved by knowing there is room for growth and good performance is rewarded.

Employees should be encouraged to apply for new positions, or to recommend acquaintances they know who would bring needed skills to your workforce.  An internal search can be conducted prior to, or alongside, other recruiting efforts.

Those outside efforts can include advertising in industry publications, word-of-mouth in the industry, job posting websites, traditional print media, and employment agencies.  Depending on your business and the position, there may be professional association websites and university career centers that are excellent places to post the opening.
