Over the course of the last month I have delivered a series of presentations to recruiters – both in-house and agency side. This is the first of the presentations – How Recruiters Can Build Their Social Media Profiles To Attract More Candidates. I was asked to share my experiences of some of the things recruiters could do on social media that would benefit them in their social media candidate attraction.
Job boards are dead, long live LinkedIn!
LinkedIn is dead, long live…
Ok, I know LinkedIn is far from dead, but the way many recruiters have used it, it may just be dying out with new changes. So, what’s next?
There is one thing for sure, whatever it is, it ain’t gonna be free! And it might just be any one of the dead channels above, or a completely new one.

Social media is increasingly becoming an important and influential medium in today’s recruitment industry. Whether it’s for marketing strategy, for hiring or even for talent management within an organization, social media has a huge role to play.
Companies that focus on offline or other integrated marketing approaches are now shifting towards new strategies.

In the domain of social media recruitment, Google Plus is often ignored. It is rather surprising that despite being a treasure trove for candidate sourcing, it is often written off by recruiters and employers looking to hire.
However, if delved deep, recruiters can make more out of Google Plus and reap enormous benefits from the social channel regarding candidate sourcing.

You no doubt have a social recruitment strategy that includes the likes of LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook, but what about Instagram? Surely it’s just for sharing pictures of #brunchgoals or your morning #yoga poses right? Wrong! Of course, you’ll still find these kinds of images, however, Instagram can also be used as part of a wider social recruitment strategy to increase candidate and client reach and engagement, as well as being a useful sourcing tool if you know where to look!
With traditional recruitment being killed off by social media, recruitment marketing could be the answer you need, says Shelley Hoppe of creative content agency Southerly
Unless your target candidate is from Europa, they are likely on Facebook. With over a billion daily active users, this platform should not be ignored by any brand. When using this platform, there are many factors that you should weigh including company size, brand recognition and budget.
The social media platform—with its growing audience—has become a reasonable marketing platform almost for all types of businesses.

The talent acquisition process until recently was completely outdated, saturated and more importantly, emotionless. Technological advances emerging every day have managed to forge a new way of recruiting to up and coming industries that before didn’t even exist.
Think Facebook reviews don’t matter? Think again.
In the last 5 months I’ve trained and spoken in 4 different continents, it’s been a whirlwind and truly amazing.
Nearly all of the HR & Recruitment professionals I have encountered in this time are actively using Facebook to keep in touch with family, friends and colleagues.
