Like most recruiters, I have a LinkedIN profile, tweet regularly on Twitter, have a Facebook page, am exploring QR Codes, etc. I was hoping that will all the new social media outlets, filling openings would be a lot easier. Wrong is an understatement. *Note: I did the following WITHOUT a social media strategy. Smart, huh?* I posted my openings on LinkedIN via different groups and on my page. Don't get me wrong, I received a lot of interest HOWEVER it wasn't the "interest" I was hoping for. As you may have read in other articles, LinkedIN Is a great resources for management and/or salaried employees. If you are anything but entry-level, LinkedIN is for you. I recruit for part time, entry level, non-salary positions in the Southwest USA. People that want to work 20 hours/wk for around minimum wage don't typically frequent LinkedIN. Before I invested any more of my time, I decided to do some actual research on Social Media and recruitment. What I found was amazing and led me to Twitter. I (attempt!) to Tweet regularly to keep myself and the company I work for, relevant. There are groups and organizations on Twitter that are in direct relation to the position I am recruiting for. I follow them and jump in on a conversation every now again. I never thought I would say this but I look forward to going to work everyday to get on Twitter! lol As time moves on, I am hoping to delve into other social media avenues and eventually become the go-to person at the company I work for!!
