Social Media and Recruiting

The new vogue notion in the media is that social networking can be an effective way for talent to market themselves. It is also the current “in vogue” method to source talent . . . and rightly so.

With so many people online, there is so much information available to choose from . . . were i not for all the work, it would make sense to forgo 3rd party recruiters and do it yourself.

Here are a few ideas that you can employ to help you use social networking sites effectively.

Are you using Twitter to broadcast job openings?

Is your Twitter account connected to your Facebook page and your LinkedIn account?

If you are a recruiter, are you searching LinkedIn regularly for candidate leads (to use it effectively, you really need one of the services they charge for)?

Does your firm have a fan page on Facebook? Do you monitor it for what people say about the firm? Do you list positions there with links to your website?

If you have a LinkedIn profile, is it only constructed toward promoting yourself or does it promote opportunities at your firm.

Have you created a presentation about your firm and why it is a great place to work and posted it to Slideshare.com . From there, you can connect it to your LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook accounts. Add it to Scribd and Docstoc , too.

Do you answer questions on LinkedIn Answers?

Do you use tags on LinkedIn to categorize people?

Do you actually recruit from LinkedIn? You know, use the information that is there and then pick up the phone and call someone?

Have you actually Googled yourself and seen what others may have said about you?

Have you searched groups on Ning to find groups where your target audience might be lurking? Ning is a service that allows people to create their own social network. Search for groups to join or create your own.

Deploying some of these ideas will result in more hires less expensively.

Google+ and Your Job Search

Are you one of the millions of people who have signed up for Google+?

If you are, you have seen what has the potential for being a power communications platform that can be incorporated into a job search.

G+ can already be incorporated into your search.

1. Create Circles

Circles are one of G+’s additions to social networking. It is the idea of creating small; (or eventually) large groups of people who you want to tell about certain aspects of your lilfe, work or share information with. Google offers Friends, Acquaintances, Family and a few others.

Create them for colleagues at work because, you kinow, they will eventually change jobs and this will let you stay in contact with them easily (even if they are not on G+, Google emails them).

2. Huddles

Huddles is a video chat service that lets you create adhoc chats. I think of this is a great collaboration tool for job hunters to support one another. Imagine there are four of you who meet at a networking event who want to stay in contact and support one another. Create a huddle for these four, meet online regularly and create a mini networking/support group with one another between meetings of your bigger group.

3. Sparks

Although Google+ initially offers Sparks around a few categories, you can create Sparks around different topics of interest for you. Sparks will deliver information on those topics to you. It’s like having a mini RSS feed or mini news service available to you.

Tools like G+, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn are tools to help you, not just during your current job search for the next one and the one after that. Like investing money, it can become a long term asset that can support you for years to come if you take the time to make regular deposits.
