Social Media Recruiting

Social recruiting can be described as a subset of recruitment that includes the sourcing of job applicants via social networking sites; as well as, the potential screening of candidates based on information gleaned from their social media profiles (though this latter example is something companies should approach carefully and consistently in the hiring process, if employed).

In this age of technology, it is to the advantage of job seekers to make their various profiles content-rich with detailed descriptions of work experiences, education, skills, certifications, recommendations, etc. so that social networking-savvy recruiters are more likely to find them online when doing candidate searches.

ExactHire’s applicant tracking system features many social media recruiting tools that allow talent acquisition specialists and existing employees to automatically share job listings with their networks and track the results of their efforts to make employee referrals.
