What’s So Wrong With Recruiting On Facebook? By @WinningImpress

Did you know that recently Facebook had 1 billion users log in on the one day? That’s a staggering 1/3rd of all Internet users and 2/3rds of their own users all in the one place at the one time.

So why aren’t you fishing in this pond?

As a seasoned social recruiting trainer the excuses I usually hear are along the lines of it’s personal, it’s creepy, people won’t like it, we’re not allowed access (staggering in 2015!), my CEO is scared of it, and so on.

How I Wrote My New Book – Social Media Recruitment

After fourteen months in the making, my latest project – my new book, Social Media Recruitment – is now published*. And if I say so myself it is a damn good book –ok, I am a little biased 🙂
I had the pleasure of taking delivery of some copies of the book this week, and I am really. The publishers Kogan Page have done a great job on the production side – the many emails back and forth, checking and re-checking, at the end of last year were worth it!

Sourcing with Facebook

It is a surprise to me that Sourcing on Facebook is not more common. It seems that most recruiters turn first to job boards or LinkedIn or maybe even their own database before venturing further into the many other internet resources available. Perhaps these traditional routes offer low hanging fruit but we all know that valuable (Passive) candidates can be found elsewhere and that means Facebook should be considered a primary resource.
