Social media is providing job seekers with a new avenue to be seen and revolutionizing recruitment for employers and the field of HR in general.
Social media and technology have definitely redefined the way candidates reach out to and communicate with prospective employers.
HootSuite CEO, Ryan Holmes gives us some great insights into the future of recruiting and what candidates should do to increase their chances of being hired.
"The resume is no longer the first step in the recruitment process; It’s one of the last. Social media gives both candidates and employers the chance to be more active in their job hunt—saving time and money and ensuring that applicants who get the job are the best fit for the company and stay around for the long haul."
