I was asked to do a presentation for the Minnesota Recruiting & Staffing Association and talk to my colleagues about the use of Social Media in recruiting and if it helps or hurt us:
Here is the description of the event:
It used to be staffing companies and recruiting firms were the only ones with all the information, the "Golden Rolodex" of candidates and companies. Now our clients and candidates have access to much of the same information. Social media sites are a great tool but some clients are hiring their own internal recruiters to mine these same sites for candidates.
So what can we provide that they still need and how do we show our value? What are companies doing and what could we be doing? Finding people is easy, it is the information overload we all struggle with and how to best handle that. Come hear about some simple techniques that you can implement when you get back to the office.
