Social Networks for Building Candidate Pools: Smart Strategies for Using Online Networking Tools
|Date / Time:
Social media sites are not just places to share pictures and chat—they have morphed into a powerful tool for job seekers and recruiters alike. With today’s tougher talent marketplace, recruiting has to move from the reactive mode (When there’s an opening I’ll try to fill it) to the proactive mode, (I’m creating a pool of candidate connections on social media).
Every recruiter needs to learn to use these new tools. It’s essential because the candidates you want to find in the 21st century live on social media. Of course you’ll post job openings on social media, but that is only a small part of the process. You can’t afford to overlook the myriad ways to use social media to find potential job candidates and then to nurture them.
Social media is a two-way street. Recruiters must learn to “be social” and communicate company culture and employment brand—putting a human face on the organization—through using various social media channels. They must be constantly building and promoting their employment brand. For example, posting rich, informative content related to your company or the industry can entice more interaction with possible candidates. Keep the conversation going by responding to candidates’ questions quickly. In addition, engage current employees to post about the company; it gives potential hires a look at how it feels to work at your organization. Join us for this fast-paced webinar to find out:

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
