Nowadays, everything is social. And if it isn’t, it has to be made so. At first I thought, what is the need?
But there is one. It’s like when you add the social element to something, you really do bring value with added connections and engagement. A person can be spurred on by something someone else said. In the same way, you could find the perfect candidate for your job, who otherwise, you would have most likely missed out on.
There’s a growing number of options in the recruitment space, but I’m increasingly convinced that traditional recruitment methodology is no longer enough. It would be sensible to integrate your traditional strategy with what technology offers. Tools like easy posting of ads to websites, job boards and social networks are just the beginning and definitely a must have, together with candidates management, tracking and monitoring tools.
Social recruitment is only at the beginning and is certainly bringing a fresh new look to the meaning of the word recruitment.
