Today’s buzz: Social Recruiting
Gone is the era of your HR manager hoping hard-to-find talent would stumble upon their business-critical job postings. Today, millions of job candidates eagerly post their credentials on social media sites. Is successful social recruiting for top talent an art or a science for today’s HR? The experts speak. Mervyn Dinnen, Social engagement strategist: “Social recruiting is just recruiting. Forget the word ‘social’… Get the hiring process right… then ‘social’ is no different than the phone or Internet.” Katrina Collier, Winning Impression: “Finding people on social channels is easy. Getting a response is a different matter and that’s the art. If you ignore or mistreat social job seekers, you’ll miss hiring great people…” Will Staney, SAP: “Social media is not necessarily a source of hire, it’s a communication channel. It’s important to remember this when measuring an ROI of your social recruiting efforts.” Join us for Social Recruiting: Art or Science?
