Social Networking Beyond LinkedIn Social Networking Beyond LinkedIn Presentation Transcript

  • Social Networking Beyond LinkedIn How to pursue the other big passive prospect pools Presented by Glenn Gutmacher ( [email_address] ) VP, JobMachine.net / Arbita Education & Consulting Services (ACES)
  • Overview
    • Great tools for searching people, but don’t use them just for that
    • Employer brand and trust building benefits can be significant
    • Provides additional detail on prospective candidates
    • Not for active or volume recruiting
    • Companies actively recruiting this way are in different industries, but skewing to finance, high tech and retail
    • John Sullivan’s recent webinar on this topic reported best practices from Dell and Zappos
    • Get your employees involved with socnets and help them (e.g., provide good company-related content; train on best first approaches, which is *not* a job pitch, etc.)
    • Alumni social networks (e.g., use a vendor like AffiliateCircles or create yourself within Facebook)

    • About 50% “out of college”
    • Regular search: http://www.facebook.com/srch.php lets you find classmates by any university name or coworkers by any company name (goes beyond your joined networks)
    • The profile search has the most field criteria choices (interests, location, etc.), but only searches within your network
    • Friend finder lets you upload an address book or IM list file, or search by a name or email across all of Facebook

  • Facebook is Web 2.0 Marketing
    • Use it on your wireless devices (e.g., Facebook for Blackberry app , or Facebook’s own mobile app .
    • Go to the main mobile section within Facebook which shows how to upload content from your mobile device to Facebook, receive content from others on your mobile, or just browse Facebook from a mobile-friendly browser interface.
    • Twitter can be run through your Facebook page, too
    • You can find friends’ mobile and other posted phone numbers under Phonebook tab
    • Focus your incoming content feeds on things of interest to recruiters (more about groups, and more about profiles)
    • Similarly, you can control what friends see about you

  • MySpace
    • 200 MM+ users, all social, not much business
    • Search MySpace from Google with the site: command
      • site:www.myspace.com (occupation.*.CPA OR major.*.accounting)
    • Limit geography with intitle: for city or state
      • For example add intitle:virginia or intitle:atlanta to the site: search, or use the previous example with multiple nearby city names:
      • site:www.myspace.com (occupation.*.CPA OR major.*.accounting) (intitle:jacksonville OR intitle:orlando)
    • Filter for specific universities
      • For example: university.of.houston
    • Diversity inclusion search:
      • site:www.myspace.com ethnicity.*.asian (or latino, black, etc.)

  • MySpace
    • Post MySpace Classified job ads
    • View job-related apps by recent or overall popularity; can find other apps by keyword
    • Create your own MySpace page free (prompted to do this when you create your account)
    • Friend Updates : your friends can be updated when you join a group, post or reply in a forum, add a video, install an app, get tagged in a photo, create new friend categories, become friends with a band, filmmaker, comedian or brand, etc.
    • Blogging is possible, but the blog groups are too scattered to be worthwhile.

  • Twitter
    • Twitter is a free social networking and micro-blogging service to send text-based posts, up to 140 characters long (“tweets”) to the Twitter website, mobile devices, etc., via short message service [SMS], instant messaging (IM), or a third-party app. You can find candidates, useful tools, resource sites, etc. See blogpost by Jason Buss for Twitter benefits
    • Create a free account at Twitter. Include a laundry list of appropriate keywords in your profile that people would search on.
    • In the "What are you doing?" box, use links to URLs if it’s not short. Use TinyURL.com or an equivalent tool. By default, that is a public tweet anyone could potentially find.
    • In the right-hand column of Twitter’s homepage, you can see your numbers.

  • Twitter
    • Click Find People atop Twitter homepage, you can type a skill term or job title (not just names), and maybe narrow by location, e.g., "software engineer" "new york" or J2ME Boston, but it's best to use Twitter's Advanced Search to target your criteria. In the results, you can click the Follow button beside any person to follow that user if not protected status.
    • Another way to find relevant people on Twitter is Twitter Tracking . You can type keywords of interest (e.g., a unique business or technology term/phrase) and whenever someone types that in an update (across the entire Twitter network, not just who you're following), you will get a message.
    • TwitHire is a free job posting site for Twitter.

  • Twitter
    • Great examples of how to search Twitter from posts about Summize (now Twitter advanced search) by Shally Steckerl and Jim Stroud that go beyond simple keyword/phrase searches:
    • geographic search: you can combine keywords with a person's cited location - e.g. (note use of boolean) near:Boston sql
    • type a conference name to find people talking about that conference (who are likely attendees or panelists)
    • type the phrase “I work for” followed by the name of a company (e.g., this has some posts from Microsoft employees).
    • Among the comments to Jim's post was a great tip from recruiter Michael Specht: “Most tech conferences [and] on Twitter folks have begun using hashtags [# plus keyword] to indicate the discussion going on at the conference. So search for #ConferenceTag and you get all of the [conference] gossip.” (e.g., #pubcamp).
    • Here’s a great source of popular hashtags .
