Social Network Recruiting
Popular Social Media Sites can be an excellent source of free resumes. Using your networks of Social Media Friends, Followers and Groups opens a new channel for communicating your hiring needs to a wider audience.
Initially conceived to help individuals connect with others with similar interests, Social Networks are now proving useful in helping recruiters connect with individuals seeking employment opportunities. On a network like LinkedIn, a recruiter can "go it alone" by creating a profile and then looking for others with similar occupations, professional interests, and or the recruiter can join one or more groups connected to particular occupations. Of course, the recruiter can start a group if they don't find one matching their needs.
The Social Media "Big Four"
Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter are considered the "Big Three" of Social Media Recruiting, with Facebook being the largest Social Media Channel. The rise in popularity of online informational videos changes the "Big Three" to the "Big Four" with the addition of YouTube. While there are literally hundreds of other Social Networks, including MySpace, MyLife and Friendster, the "Big Four" are all you should ever need.
HireNet and Social Media Recruiting
HireNet will help you set up accounts on the four major social networking groups. One account on each network may suffice, but if you have multiple recruiters, you'll probably want each recruiter to create separate Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter accounts, but one YouTube account for the company should suffice. Once social media accounts are created, recruiters can Share information about current employment opportunities with their Followers (Twitter), Friends (Facebook), or Groups (LinketIn). Job information can be entered on a job-by-job basis, or for multiple job opportunities, as an RSS feed.
Social Networking RSS Job Feeds
Most commonly translated as "Really Simple Syndication," RSS feeds are used to publish lists of frequently changing information, like newspaper headlines â€¦ or lists of open jobs. The nice thing about a HireNet RSS Job Feed is that it's always up-to-date. Your company, or individual recruiters, install an RSS feed once, and every time your HireNet postings are updated, the RSS Feed is automatically updated as well.
RSS feeds provide brief summaries of open jobs and then allow the reader to click back to the complete job posting, where they can submit an application online. A single RSS feed can contain information on all open jobs, or multiple feeds can be produced listing all the jobs in a specific occupation, in a specific location, or collected by some other dimension appropriate to a particular social networking group.
