Check out my quick video blog
about the recent buzz about social networking and how it can be used for recruitment. I’ve spent many long nights compiling thoughts and strategies about social networking recruiting and think this will be the start of a video blog series on my findings (should anyone care to hear them).
Most importantly is the idea of having a targeted, coordinated campaign that connects your recruiting efforts on multiple networks to a main hub on your careers site to ensure that you don’t lose a candidate at “2nd base” in the recruiting process. While observing what companies are doing out there, I’m seeing far too often people using Facebook or LinkedIn, but with no real strategy to really obtain a passive candidate. They’re doing their part, but there’s no strong employment marketing, design or interactivity strategy behind making it all work together.
The video explains more, but let me know what you think and if you want to hear more (trust me, there’s plenty).
