Are you thinking of using social recruiting to help with your overall hiring strategy? If so, you’ll find that it’s very beneficial and can open the door to finding great personnel that will be very valuable to your company.
Those that haven’t yet used social media to help with hiring efforts might find it confusing. There’s a method to the madness and it’s important to make sure you create a solid plan to help you in your journey.
Tips for Creating a Social Recruiting Strategy
Before recruiting on social media, set a few objectives. Know what your goals are. Set a schedule for searching and stick with it.
Also research the differences in each social media platform. Twitter is vastly different from Facebook. Instagram is unique as well. Know each site and how it works. Then, set objectives according to each network.
Who are you targeting? You’ll want to have a good idea of the type of recruits you’re looking for before the search begins. Map out where you’re going to look for them and when.
Will you use every social site available? Will you only work with one or two? During the first step of strategizing, setting objectives, you’ll learn about each platform and whether or not you prefer the benefits they offer for hiring efforts.
Take time to form quality and interesting content on each social media website. Each content plan will be different, depending on the site. Make sure your objectives are met with each and also attractive to potential candidates.
It’s important to make sure your efforts and strategies are paying off. Monitor your activity and see how things are going. Maintain or alter your strategy depending on the results you find when measuring your achievements.
Recruiting via social media can be a big job. The exposure you gain from it is far beyond anything else out there. Take advantage of the benefits it offers!
