Social Media is having an impact on how we live, work and play. It is also establishing itself as a platform, not just for marketing and customer service, but also for recruitment and candidate attraction. The use of sites like LinkedIn, Viadeo, Xing, Facebook, Twitter and others to source or engage with talent is growing by the day. Still, many hiring managers are yet to fully grasp the concept and how to implement a social media in recruiting strategy. That is why Crexia organises a Social Media in Recruitment conference. After 2 successful events in London, UK, they are planning the Social Recruiting Conference (#SRCONF) in Paris, France.
#SRCONF Chair, Alan Whitford interviewed Andy Headworth of Sirona Consulting, one of our speakers for the Social Recruiting Conference Paris, taking place on 1st December 2011.
Andy will be speaking about Social Recruiting: Tools, Technologies and Techniques and also join a panel on Social Recruiting Strategy at the conference. He will present a detailed guide on how to use Social Media tools for Recruiting, with specific case studies from diverse companies. This will cover tools like Twitter, Facebook and Foursquare. Attendees will learn how to source candidates via Twitter from Job distribution and tracking to candidate engagement and attraction, including location-based platforms. It will showcase several examples of how brands are using Social Media to build and manage external talent communities, and some results from the application of these strategies.
