- the impact of social media sites on recruiters and hiring managers;
- how social media is changing the nature of recruiting; and
- legal liability and exposure of using social media.
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 a 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.
