Topic: How to Add Tweets, Shares, Follows and Likes to Your Recruiting Strategy


Program Description:

Does your recruiting strategy consist of a help-wanted sign in the window, a print ad or buying a posting on one of the big job boards? Do you start a search only to find out weeks into it that you are looking for the wrong skill set or that the job needs have been redefined? Have you ever been told to “find a rock star” but are not given any direction as to what that really means? Do you find it impossible to recruit in an efficient and effective manner given all the other things that need to be done in a day?

Learn from the talent strategy experts at strategic HR, inc. how to create an effective recruiting strategy from the bottom up. We’ll explore employment branding, the candidate experience and how to incorporate social media into your recruitment strategy. You’ll walk away with loads of examples and resources to get your recruiting efforts streamlined to save you time, effort and money.

Learning Objectives:

1. Effective Recruiting Strategies – Best Practices
2. What is Social Media and Why Should It Be Part Of The Recruiting Strategy?
