Tips for enaging candidates on social media

Engaging with candidates on social media - how to bring your hiring process to the digital age

We've never been more connected than we are now, and with the rise of social media, it's easier than ever to connect with people.

It can be difficult to attract the most qualified candidates through your company's website or ads alone. These days, people typically find jobs through friends, connections on LinkedIn, or through an advertisement they saw on Facebook. But what if there was a way to push your company out there to even more qualified candidates? With social media campaigns geared towards attracting the best talent out there for your company, you can engage with candidates who may not have otherwise seen your job postings. Here are some ways to bring social media into your hiring process and create a digital-driven recruitment strategy

Why should I use social media for hiring?

You could be missing out on some of the best potential candidates for your recruitment agency if you're not using social media to find them.

People are more likely to find jobs through friends, connections on LinkedIn, or an advertisement they saw on Facebook. You can't expect people to search your recruitment website every day for job openings.

More than 50 percent of today's workforce is connected to social media. Now, you can tap into this pool of talent by using social media in your hiring process. It only takes a few minutes every few days to post about your company and reach qualified candidates who may otherwise never see your job postings.

How do I create a social media strategy to attract candidates?

Start Early

When you're creating your social media strategy, make sure to start early. You want to have a plan in place before you launch any campaigns so that you don't feel overwhelmed. Start by asking yourself what type of content you'll be posting and how often. You also need to think about which platforms will work best for your company and your audience.

Consider Your Audience

The people who follow you on social media are typically individuals who are currently looking for work or looking for more information about the company they're interested in working at. You want to create social media content that is relevant to these individuals so they know what your company is all about.

Then, think about your current candidates. Do they have profiles on social media? Should users be required to log-in through LinkedIn? These are all questions you should be asking yourself when it comes to developing your social media strategy.

Be Consistent with Your Content

It may seem like the most obvious thing in the world, but if you want people to notice your social media campaign, then it needs to exist consistently over time. One post here and there won't do much good since people will forget about it before too long.

What platforms should I be using?

With social media, you have a lot of options when it comes to which platforms you should be using. The most popular platform for recruitment is LinkedIn, which has been used by almost every professional in the world at some point. Other sites, like Facebook and Twitter, can also prove useful in recruitment campaigns.

How do social media and the job application process work together?

Social media has completely changed the way we connect with people. It's no longer about business cards and introductions; it's about who you know and what you know, and this extends to your social media presence. When it comes to recruitment, social media can help you reach out to those qualified candidates now.

As a job seeker, if you don't want to be contacted by a company through their website or ads alone, you can find them on Facebook.

Twitter is also a great way for companies to promote themselves as well as engage with potential employees. LinkedIn provides quick connections to qualified talent and allows recruiters to research talent before reaching out via email or phone call.

And don't forget about Instagram! Recruiters are using Instagram as a way to market their company's culture and benefits package in hopes of attracting the best talent possible.

How can social media help me find qualified candidates?

Social media can be an excellent tool for companies to attract talent. With the rise of social media, it's easier than ever to connect with people. The question is how can your company use this power to find qualified candidates?

The first thing you'll need to do is create a strategy.

If you're looking for a creative-based job, then LinkedIn would be the best place to start.

LinkedIn has more than 400 million members, so there are bound to be some qualified creatives out there that are just waiting for an opportunity. Facebook could also prove fruitful, as there are over 1 billion active monthly users on the site.

You could also take advantage of sites like Pinterest, which has 80 million active monthly users and is known for being popular among female professionals in the United States. Companies have started experimenting with posting job listings on Pinterest to find qualified candidates who may not have otherwise seen their postings elsewhere.

Alternatively, if you're looking for a tech-based job, then sites like Twitter or Reddit might be better suited for your search.

Attracting qualified talent with job postings

One way to attract qualified talent is by posting your job openings on social media sites. By posting jobs on sites like Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter, you are able to show your company's name in front of an even larger audience.

Not only are you reaching more people, but with the click of a mouse, the person who sees your posts can apply for your job right then and there! This means that if they're qualified for the position, they'll be one step closer to becoming a valuable candidate in your recruitment CRM.

Promoting your recruitment agency for active talent to find you

One of the most efficient ways to attract top talent is to get your company out there through active social media channels. That means using social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn to promote your company. It can be difficult to find the right people for your company if they're not actively searching for jobs in the same way that you are actively searching for them, but with a strong digital presence, you'll be able to reach more potential candidates.

Andrew and the Nodex team have been superb from the moment I asked for a demonstration on their CRM and i knew they would be the right business for me from them. Really easy to speak to, helpful and will go out of their way to provide first class customer service.
