Using Social Media to Transform Your Hiring Process

Posted by Erin Borgerson on April 10, 2014

More and more managers are turning to social media for help in the recruitment process. Why? Because 26497018_sit's easy, accessible, and (in most cases) cost effective. However, as more and more companies are trying this new approach to recruiting, marketers everywhere are shuddering in fear.

Social media recruiting involves so much more than just copying and pasting a job description. The post needs to have (at the very least) a target audience, be concise, and most importantly - actually have a link to apply to the job. It sounds simple; after all, how difficult is it to remember a link? But take it from us, Hireology's marketing team, more companies than you would expect have made an error like that.

So to help you make the most of your social recruiting efforts, while making sure everything you are doing is legal, we'll be holding a webinar on Thursday, May 15th at 11 a.m. CST. "Using Social Media to Transform Your Hiring Process" will discuss...

  • How to most effectively attract passive and active job seekers
  • The ins and outs of Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn
  • Legal concerns and safeguards 
  • And much more!
