The impact of social media sites like Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn is undeniable but, also, undefined. Hundreds of millions of Americans now use these sites and others like them for an expanding number of reasons. And it’s not just the country’s youth online, either. Twitter users are more likely to be Baby Boomers than they are to be youngsters in the 12-to-24 crowd.
So it’s no surprise that social media is causing tremendous changes in the way employers recruit and hire new employees. Employers have to look beyond standard recruiting tactics if they hope to secure the most sought-after candidates. But the adventure into the social-media sphere is not without risks. Before you send that friend request to that job applicant, be sure you know how it could expose your organization to legal liability.
Whether you’re a master of your Facebook page, or you’re still wondering what a “tweet” really is, Molly DiBianca will guide you in the right direction when it comes to social media and hiring. This 90-minute seminar will be presented live in our Wilmington office and over the internet via webinar for those who cannot attend in person. The cost? Free. First come, first serve, though, so don’t delay—e-mail or call Felicia G. (302.571.5718) to sign up today.
P.S. This is our final seminar in the Breakfast Seminar Series for 2009. We’d love to hear what you want the topics to be for our 2010 Series. Have an interest in something in particular? Drop us a line or let us know by leaving a comment.
