Should I post a simple announcement of an opening in the company on Linkedin?  Something to the effect of "We have an opening for X here in Y-location, please contact me for details if interested?"

It's a mid-level purchasing position.  I'm working my network directly for candidates but wasn't sure of the pitfalls of making a general announcement on an open forum.

We do it all the time (asking people within the organization to share job openings on their LinkedIn profiles). It hasn`t gone wrong so far.

It also means that when I am approached by people saying they are interested in a job and hearing about jobs at my organization, I ask them to follow me on LinkedIn to stay up to date on openings.

Great!  Thank you so much for the feedback.  It seemed like a good idea on the surface, I just wanted to make sure there wasn't something I was missing.
