7 Reasons to Recruit via Social Media

…HR ideas from Jeffery Giesener – SourceMob – CEO


Here are seven key reasons why SourceMob’s clients renew their contracts:

  • Candidates enjoy a new level of recruiting experience (which is continually optimized based on their click stream analytics). Through your own social career sites on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and mobile, jobs are placed wherever your candidates hang out online. The result is that you will receive more applies at lower costs (averaging $1.56-2.45 per apply). Candidates will now have the ability to easily see your jobs on their mobile devices which will stop additional defection.
  • Candidates can self-select themselves into seeing your relevant job content and recruiter conversations wherever they want to see them (including web, social and mobile networks). Employees can share and distribute jobs to their friends and colleagues easily on their preferred social and mobile platforms. This allows both passive and active candidates to follow your careers and add themselves to your own Talent Community.
  • Your job postings are shared easily through your employee social networks (LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and mobile) with just one click. This enables your employees to assist in the sourcing of hard-to-fill niche positions. This leads to a scaling pipeline of candidates at a low recruiting cost and lowered hiring cycles in tough fields.
  • Candidates do not have to return to your career site to look for jobs. Their preferred jobs are delivered to them automatically on the social network of their choosing. All job postings are optimized for mobile browsing.
  • There is no need to make manual job postings to social timelines. They are auto-posted directly from your ATS daily or through SourceMob content distribution. You are the administrator for these tools and social channels.
  • Your on-demand analytics will immediately let you view demonstrable ROI results by referring source in less than 30 days! Your boss will be able to see the results of your recruiting efforts.
