Is Social Media the New Flavor in Recruitment?

It’s the name everywhere, the new flavor of recruitment, time effective, cost effective and the right connection in minutes, so savvy & contemporary, and the magic is “social media”.

Bygone are the days when companies or recruiters advertised positions, screened responses, had live meetings, made assessments and presented their synopsis and profiles.  Then there were the arrays of interviews and finally the inductions.  There was so much time spent to eventually trace the right find.

How about working smart in the 21st Century?  A click does it all!!

Everyone wants to go green, a paperless office, competencies defined in minutes and unravel the talent “the cream of the crop” to the hiring managers in no time. Well!! It is time for action.

Social media a seamless boundary to connect with potential employees, perform research on employers, and identify talents.  It also can be used to uncover a person’s social skills in the electronic world.  It is a powerful tool for building relationships.  It is a reference guide.

I am a great fan of social media and use it for transparency, to gain insight into the wisdom of people, and to work quickly to source talent.

How about you?
