Why Social Recruiting Is Everyone’s Job


If you’re like most employers, you’ve probably already set up some sort of social media presence dedicated to careers and hiring.

A recent study showed fully 94% of recruiters reported using at least one social network for sourcing or talent attraction in 2015, evidence that this emerging technology has already moved from the recruitment margins to the mainstream.

Similarly, 59% of workers surveyed say social media either influenced or impacted their last job search, more evidence that for recruiters, social isn’t a question of “why,” but “how.”

With more or less every employer on social media, however, standing out from the crowd – and connecting with (or converting) top talent is more challenging than ever before.
