We know the recruitment world is changing and new rules now apply in this digital world. It’s time for you and your team to get smarter and get serious about social recruiting.
What is social recruiting? It is recruiting candidates by using social platforms as talent databases or for advertising.
The business case for social recruiting is clear. Passive candidates are using social media so go where the talent is. Give them an easy way to entertain your pitch without too much effort on their part which provides a triple win outcome for you, the client and the candidate. Also social media users are, typically, forward-thinking, innovative, and very much into technology – very desirable traits in today’s job market.
Social recruiting is cost effective and cheaper than job boards, it allows you to research and get to your audience from afar (digital stalking but in a positive way). Using social and digital channels you can find commonalities, shared interests & connections and then use this to connect.
If you don’t have a Social Recruiting strategy as part of your existing process you are missing out on opportunities that your competition is capitalising on.
