Recruiting has evolved and Social Media is here (and has been here for years now – where have you been?). People ask me all the time – can you find candidates on twitter and the answer is YES. Just last month, I placed a candidate on a PERM job and I sourced them from twitter.
Twitter is also a great tool for broadcasting your opportunities and the jobs you are recruiting for. Recruiters – do you have job seekers calling you daily or weekly to see if you have any new jobs, for them? Now tell them to follow you on twitter and that you post all of your current opportunities and jobs there. Now you have more time to do other duties – like recruiting.
Evolve in your practice and try something new. Let me Challenge you – try to find candidates using Social Media. Try something new and see what happens.
There are many resources out there to get started and to show you how to recruit using Social Media. Go on YouTube, visit blogs – see how people are using it and being successful. I know I do. Here is a video I found that may help the Beginner.
