o realize that this is not the only way to understand a candidate. In fact how often do you look at a CV and forget that there may actually be a living breathing person behind it, who probably has a whole lot more going on in their lives than the sound byte under hobbies and interests would even begin to suggest.
Perhaps it is because of this Resume obsession that Twitter is such an under utilized recruitment resource. Twitter is perhaps as far away from a CV as it is possible to get. Perhaps it is simply this reason that so many recruiters can’t seem to appreciate the joys of using twitter to recruit. It is worth noting that Recruiters use LinkedIn to find Candidates but it is Twitter that candidates will turn to to find a job.
Twitter should not be considered the end goal, rather Twitter is the channel through which Recruiters can find and engage with the talent communities they are interested in. With Twitter Sourcing, it is all about who knows who (Friends/Follows).
