Recruiting In The Digital Age: New Online Profile Elements To Help You Size-Up Star Talent

About This Course:
The days when the résumé and cover letter were the gold standard in recruiting are long gone. Recruiters today have the benefit of getting a much more dynamic, 360-degree view of potential candidates via their online profiles.

Whether through Twitter feeds, LinkedIn profiles, Facebook, Instagram, or their own personal websites and blogs, a candidate’s hard and soft skills can become readily apparent to recruiters.

There is plenty of advice out there for jobseekers when it comes to what should and shouldn’t be in your online profile, but, what about advice for recruiters? How should you be using this ever-expanding pipeline of candidate of information most effectively?

A recent survey by Jobvite found that while 94 percent of recruiters use LinkedIn as a major source of candidates, only 26 percent of jobseekers are active on the site. How do you make sure you’re not overlooking a superstar candidate who may just not be paying attention to his or her LinkedIn information? How do you best distill the information and the clues about a potential candidate’s success that are just waiting to be discovered in their online profiles?

Join us for a hands-on, tactical look at how recruiters can effectively and efficiently size up a candidate using the latest online profile elements. Kelly Dingee, director of strategic recruiting at Staffing Advisors, will reveal the top 5 things you need to do right now to source top candidates through online profiles.
