5 Ways Recruiters are Slipping up on Social Media


Despite how social recruitment is as an industry, many agencies and consultants are making big mistakes in the ways they share news through social networks.

Some of these mistakes are basic, some are less obvious, but each of them can significantly hold you back from gaining the followers and influence you deserve.

It’s easy to set up your Twitter or Facebook account to automatically share the latest openings as they’re made available. And while you may pull in candidates who search for locations and industries, there will be no engagement and few followers. After all, who wants two hundred job postings in their feed every day?
