Social Media Recruiting
Social media probably took us all by surprise with its substantial growth. It has become a multi-purposeful resource for all. It’s not just used to talk with your pals back in your hometown or friends from high school much anymore. Social media has become the new area where job seekers and recruiters hangout. That’s right ladies and gentlemen, with the help of hashtags such as #jobsearch and #nowhiring social recruiting has become a much easier search platform for job-seekers. Did you know that social networks have overtaken all other sources and has become the number-one place for qualified candidates? Now in order to successfully utilize this trend, you want to make sure your business is keeping note of where these top candidates hang out. You have to know where they are and how to grab their attention. Also keep in mind all your social profiles need to be squeaky clean. (Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter etc.) You need to have a good presence in the world of social media in order for this trend to work. Make sure all your descriptions are up to date, your pictures are clear and things are well organized. Any little misunderstanding can lead failure in this recruitment trend. In a pervious article we stated that employees chose employers just like employers choose employees. So make sure your business is in good standing too because if it isn’t, your business wont stand a chance.
Know your competition
That’s right business owners, keep a very close eye on your competition. This is a business must in every industry. You should already be aware of your competition and what they’re doing. This is important because when applicants are visiting your listing(s) they’re looking at everything your business has to offer. Things such as benefits, salary or hourly pay and the opportunity of career growth. Once they develop a distinction between your business and others they will proceed to the next step in the journey which is the final decision. Now your business can either steal this candidates heart or completely strike out. If you’re constantly staying in the loop with your competitors then your business won’t be the one that struck out. You’ll be the winner! HORRAY! Bottomline here, people want to have a sense of security at their potential new job. No one really likes to have to constantly look for jobs – that can get rather uneventful. Applicants prefer to stay at one location, learn, grow and feel at home.
