If you are the typical under-resourced HR manager wearing multiple hats, social recruiting offers a powerful alternative and a way to simplify your life. Social recruiting allows you to tap into active and passive pools of talent that just aren¹t available through traditional recruitment methods.
An easier way to reach the top talent
A recent study found 75%* of working professionals qualify as passive candidates. They won’t be answering job adverts, but they are likely to be on social media. Social platforms like LinkedIn can help you find and talk to them.
The power of attraction
Social recruitment will require you to wear a marketer and brand ambassador hat, because your ultimate goal is to have the best talent approach you, rather than the other way around. Building a compelling ‘talent brand’ will establish your company as an irresistible employer in the minds of your target candidates.
