Social Media Tools You Can Use To Recruit

I'm going to change the way you recruit, in less than 5 minutes a day.

My new webinar on August 12th is about Recruiting 2.0 Tools. We're going to surf the world-wide web and repurpose social media tools to use in recruiting. Calendars, video slideshows, click-to-call sites, and microblogging are all on the menu. This will be like nothing the recruiting world has ever imagined.

Sign up for 1:30 EST, August 12th at Hireability.

Recruiting 2.0 Tools Workshop: 5 Minutes A Day To Change The Way You Hire

Jim Durbin is an expert in social media who connects companies with results-driven candidates. As a consultant and business owner, Jim has worked with over 40 companies to deliver integrated marketing solutions using blogs, social networks, widgets and video.

In this 90 minute webinar, Jim demonstrates a step by step walk-through of the hottest Web 2.0 applications, including Twitter, FriendFeed, Meebo, YouTube, Flikr, Skype, Jajah, and more. This is no dry presentation. We’ll show you how to easily manage entire social media campaigns in less than five minutes a day, using free tools that connect you with hundreds of the right prospects in your market.

Everyone's talking about Facebook, MySpace and LinkedIn, but these sites can take a substantial upfront investment to yield results. In this one of a kind presentation, you’ll learn how to interview candidates over video, create click-to-call job orders, promote positions through microblogging, and build a referral system that requires no maintenance. The best candidates are getting smarter about looking for work. They're using the power of Web 2.0 to connect with hiring managers and other great candidates, and their personal networks often shun recruiters as unnecessary middleman. Using specialized knowledge learned in this webinar, you can get to those spaces and identify yourself as a savvy recruiter faster than your competition can post a job on Monster.

Make Social Media Work For You In 5 Minutes A Day:

Social Media is about more than social networks, and it doesn't have to take several hours a day to generate results. The explosion of free tools to improve productivity and communication can be repurposed to help recruiters find and connect with candidates, with little training and at all skill levels.

You'll learn:

The essentials to searching Twitter for candidates
Click-to-call strategies for blogs, websites, and job orders.
SMS tools that let you use the computer to send text messages to candidates, and a tool that lets you speak text messages.
Social Bookmarking sites that let you share your reading with your staff
Shortcuts and vanity urls for job orders
Free Video conferencing from your computer
Drag-and-drop Charts to spice up job descriptions for candidates
Browser tips and tricks to improve your internet reading speed

This webinar is the only one of its kind, prepared by a recruiter at the intersection of the social media and staffing communities.
