At today’s meeting, Rambo discussed the advantages and strategies behind digital and social media recruitment. Making real-time engagement possible, social media recruitment allows employers to reach candidates at a faster rate and lower cost, while also increasing brand awareness. Utilizing platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn, employers can also easily engage their audience with a competitive advantage – attracting high-quality candidates whom the organization may never acquire through traditional hiring methods.

Additional topics discussed at today’s meeting surrounded social media demographics and tips for digital recruitment success, including:

  • Create a Career Page on your website and update regularly
  • Build relationships and source candidates on LinkedIn
  • Share your organization’s story on social networks to promote brand awareness
  • Involve employees in the recruitment process – go beyond HR to share job opportunities
