    • 1. Recruitment Trends in New and Emerging Media
      Tweet feedback with #shallyotys
      Shally SteckerlEVP, Arbita,
    • 2. Trends in Recruiting via Emerging Media
      Facebook: 88% of respondents have no strategy, yet 54% have a Facebook page and 76% update Facebook less than weekly; 65% of recruiters spend less than an hour a week on it (while the average user spends 55 min./day)
      LinkedIn: 36% still do NOT have a planful strategy and only 58% manage their company page. What does your company page say about your social presence?
      Twitter: 87% have no strategy for finding candidates on it. 60% tweet less than once per month and 71% spend less than 1 hour on Twitter yet there’s 75 million tweeple
      MySpace:100% have no strategy for finding candidates there but this is still a source!
      71% have no strategy for sourcing from niche and regional networks and 83% have no strategy for sourcing on blogs: both massive, yet remain widely overlooked
      Not all the tried-and-true methods have been supplanted: 86% say Employee Referral programs are much or somewhat better than social networks. The challenge going forward is how to make social networks and employee referral programs synergistic
      70% say sourcing is a major part of their recruiting, yet 67% feel their current sourcing capabilities are inadequate and only 42% feel they have adequate training
      Search engines: Only half use Google, over 80% do not use Yahoo or Bing. They are shooting themselves in the foot, given ~20% resume overlap in query results between search engines (see Thumbshots)
    • 3. “Social Recruiting” – Fiction or Reality?
      Not all social networks are a good source of candidates
      LinkedIn is not a social network, it’s behaving like a job board
      Twitter, Facebook and blogs are about engagement and conversation, thus good branding, but not a highly efficient source of hires
      Social recruiting sources as compared to:
      Job Boards – if LinkedIn is more of a job board now, who else will follow?
      Employee Referral Programs – one of social networks’ “best and highest uses”
      SEO – “social search” will drive SEO results;
      SEM/PPC - very effectively done inside of TW, FB, LI
      Direct Marketing – emails are being replaced by FB messages, @tweets, and InMail; must be used properly (approach as engagement, value added networking, not as “hey, I have a job opening for you - click here”
      Print Advertising – a great branding device, and way to reach high volume, low complexity hires; could be replaced by direct ads on FB and maybe TW, LI
    • 4. Trends in Source of Hire
      Hires from Direct Sourcing and SEO/SEM are increasing by about 2% per year at the expense of 1) Agency hires, 2) newspapers and 3) job boards
      91% of employers have Monster contracts vs 61% LinkedIn
      36% of Job Board hires are from niche sites compared to:
      28% from Career Builder
      22% from Monster
      0.25% LinkedIn
      Source of hire continues to be extremely difficult to measure: did your applicant originate with Monster or was it really Facebook? Or did they begin with a Google search?
      Your company’s jobs or “career site” is as a destination not a source!
    • 5. Top Five Sourcing Technology Trends
      Direct Sourcing: the 20% of job openings that cannot be filled via traditional sources are filled by proactive sourcing activities to uncover experienced prospects directly from competitors using search engines and social networks.
      SEM/SEO: Search Engine Marketing also known as PPC, is buying paid advertising on search engines, job board aggregators and social media platforms like Facebook and LinkedIn. Search Engine Optimization is a long-term process that increases employment brand visibility by increasing the chances of being found in the organic (unpaid) search engine results increasing visibility of individual job postings.
      Economies of Scale: reduce cost, save time and decrease effort by centralizing and automating tasks such as posting and distributing jobs, downloading resumes, and processing or filtering information found on the Internet.
      Soliciting Referrals: aggressively, proactively and continuously soliciting referrals from everyone a recruiter comes in contact with
      Talent Communities: engaging talent in their natural habitat, building online communities populated by the types of talent you seek. Purposely-built, skill- or job function-based sites, blogs, virtual private networks, LinkedIn Groups, Facebook Pages or Ning Groups geared uniquely towards the most challenging candidate skillsets. Enhance but not detract nor replace career sites.
    • 6. Top Three Social Recruiting Strategies

      Schedule posts in advance (runs even if you're on vacation!), ideally when your target audience tweets most – even on behalf of a group
      Converge on a topic: If you see something posted (e.g., article, blogpost) that your organization should be associated with, get everyone to comment and RT
      Other robust ones include SplitTweet, CoTweetand many others on the Twitter GuruGuide handout you received.
