firms embrace social media and others shun it as a quirky novelty. It's just a tool, it's no different to the telephone or company database in that respect.
As for paying recruiters - someone still has to strike up the relationships. Decisions are still made face to face far more frequently than not. Company decision makers are time poor, recruiters will still have a gap to fill.…
e you're right, it would be a terrible thing if sources like social media made recruiter's jobs easier. Lord knows no one hangs up on recruiters who make cold calls or writes negative reviews on sites like Glassdoor or Yelp because recruiters can be too pushy on the phone.
Like I said before, social media recruiters are making deals and building relationships. People are online. You don't have to embrace it, but you certainly don't have condemn it. If it works...why is that so bad?
Just by the language you choose in your comments...you just seem kind of bitter about it all, calling people "idiots" for considering themselves thought leaders, why does that bother you? I don't call myself a thought leader but if people read what I write on a daily basis and follow me on Twitter does that make me a jerk because I have opinions and people agree? You're very definitive with the fact that social media is just a fad...I get the sense that you were like many who said email is just a fad...people will always send letters, the internet is just a fad...people will shop at stores and there's no way people would get rid of their land line phones for cell phones. Why can't people like yourself just embrace evolution and the way things are moving?
