Social media and mobile technologies go hand in hand, and their vast potential for recruiting can no longer be ignored.
These technologies can help you reduce recruiting costs, increase reach, and find more qualified talent.
- Social networks can’t replace your recruiting tools, but when used in conjunction with your current process the results are unbeatable.
- SilkRoad research shows that, all other things being equal, candidates—especially Millennials—tend to view the company that leverages social media to be more desirable.
- For effective social networking, go where the job seekers are. We surveyed them and found that LinkedIn, the well-known professional networking site, is more than four-times as popular as other social networking sites for job hunting. LinkedIn’s dominance spans all generations, including Millennials—while that group is slightly more likely to use Twitter for job leads, only a small portion of Millennials said that they receive leads via Twitter.
