    • Intro Source Interview Hire Manage Next Steps Why should I care about social media for recruiting? • Because 3 out of 4 Americans use social technology. (Forrester, The Growth Of Social Technology Adoption, 2008) • 2/3 of global internet population visit social networks (Nielsen, Global Faces & Networked Places, 2009) • Visiting social sites is now the 4th most popular online activity—ahead of personal email.

    • Intro Source Interview Hire Manage Next Steps But I don’t use social media, and neither do (some of) my targets! •  The reality: you and your target employees are in the matrix whether you like it or not. •  Your candidates search for you on Google before doing business with you. •  You are already a member of gated online communities, which you may or may not be fully leveraging: your alumni network, your local “Moms” or “Dads” mailing list, your church/synagogue/mosque You can accelerate your sales process by leveraging potential candidates’ digital footprints. These help you to source leads, filter them, and then run a better educated sales process.© 2012 David Teten.
