Posted By: Thomas Shaw, 1:26pm Monday 12 January 2009    Print Article

A fellow twitter friend of mine Ryan Chartrand from the US has produced a short video & podcast on social networking and recruitment. Ryan's rants and ideas echo my own advice and consulting I am provide to clients. Create a strategy, integrate, target and socialise.

Social Networking Recruitment

"This is a quick video blog about the recent buzz about social networking and how it can be used for recruitment. Iíve spent many long nights compiling thoughts and strategies about social networking recruiting and think this will be the start of a video blog series on my findings (should anyone care to hear them).

Most importantly is the idea of having a targeted, coordinated campaign that connects your recruiting efforts on multiple networks to a main hub on your careers site to ensure that you donít lose a candidate at ď2nd baseĒ in the recruiting process. While observing what companies are doing out there, Iím seeing far too often people using Facebook or LinkedIn, but with no real strategy to really attain a passive candidate. Theyíre doing their part, but thereís no strong employment marketing, design or interactivity strategy behind making it all work together."
