The Best Network For Sharing Jobs

The Best Network For Sharing Jobs | Talent Communities | Scoop.it
Often times in social recruiting, the three top networks are treated the same. Recruiters promote new jobs, hoping to access the social network around them. They ask people on their team to share jobs on their networks.
Herve Peitrequin's insight:

I agree with this. Posting and waiting does not work on social networks. Here is what works on different networks

 

LinkedIn – Targeted search and selective sharing.

Facebook – Wide-reaching employer branding campaigns. 

Twitter – Creating conversation with passive candidates.

By reaching out to passive talent on industry sites where they are already active, recruiters can attract candidates who might not otherwise apply.

How Starbucks used social media to humanise recruitment

How Starbucks used social media to humanise recruitment | Talent Communities | Scoop.it

This is how most companies reply to applicants:

 

“For every thousand who applied, 999 would get a system-generated ‘Thanks but no thanks’ email,” he tells LeadingCompany from Washington."

 

But what about customers?

 

“If I have a queue of customers willing to pay $4 for a latte, who then spend time getting into our system just to receive a ‘no’ from us due to the sheer volume of applicants and the way the system was set up, are they going to get back in line for their latte?”

 

Social Media allows Starbucks to treat applicants as customers. Is it expensive?

 

“But even then, it’s way, way less expensive than using employment agencies. It’s probably a tenth of the cost of traditional advertising.”

 

And finally:

 

“The companies that are going to hide behind ‘apply online’, and are apathetic and insensitive to the human element, well, they’re going to get the second- or third-rate candidates."

Why Developing a Talent Community on Social Networks Will Find Your Next Hire | Social Talent

Why Developing a Talent Community on Social Networks Will Find Your Next Hire | Social Talent | Talent Communities | Scoop.it
Matt Charney gives us some really insightful statistics on the power of talent communities when hiring, pipelining talent, and employer branding efforts on the candidate experience.
Herve Peitrequin's insight:

Immediately we can solve many of our Candidate wants and our Recruitment woes by developing a talent community on a social network, like Facebook, Google+ or LinkedIn (or all three).We can notify applicants of new roles becoming available before they’re advertised elsewhereWe can post quick videos about jobs at our company to the social network that deal with taking a tour around our location, day in the life of an employee, FAQ’s answered by the CEO or head recruiter, and give advice for competing for jobs at our companyWe can respond publicly to questions in the community around job descriptions, qualifications needed for roles, career development and salary expectationsWe can ask for referrals from those in our talent network and existing employees for vacant roles.

The Top 7 Recruiting Fails For 2012 | Talent HQ

The Top 7 Recruiting Fails For 2012 | Talent HQ | Talent Communities | Scoop.it

The biggest 2012 recruiting fails:

 

1. The Facebook Job Board

2. BranchOut

3. Talent Communities

4. Social Recruiting

5. The Taleo Acquisition

6. Mobile Recruiting

7. Recruiting with Pinterest

 

I don't agree on every one of them.

 

It all depends what you mean by talent community? Do you mean a bunch of people getting together by the common interest of getting hired by your so cool company? Then yes, it's a fail. 

 

I would add:

 

8. Recruiting with Instagram
