Social media has become a secret weapon that many recruiting firms are turning to. While social recruiting is still foreign to a lot of staffing companies, there are some companies investing heavily in the new recruiting trend. In fact, recent survey from Jobvite, revealed 73% of hiring managers plan to invest in their social media presence in 2015.
Social recruitment is tough to ignore as most people are available on social media throughout the day. But the responsibility of learning the new technique goes both ways for hiring managers and candidates. This is the time were candidates should realize their online profiles need to reflect their professional experience and career goals while demonstrating a positive, put together person. Take time to clean up social media profiles so recruiters have a chance to get to know the professional behind the profile.
