  • 2. GSR2R ~2~ If you are a recruitment consultant and you aren’t harnessing the full power of social media, you are missing out. At GSR2R we are a rec 2 rec company that appreciate how important it is to develop skills in every area especially when it comes to social networking for business. Social media is now such a huge part of most recruitment professionals’ lives that it gives you one of the easiest and best routes to engaging with them, and it can also help you with research on your market, on your roles, on your candidates, and even on what people are saying about you and your recruitment agency! Top recruitment consultants use social media to help then connect with; the best people, stay informed, and market themselves. You can use every social network going including; facebook and Twitter. The number one social media platform has to be LinkedIn. Want to know what to focus on? 1. Creating a strong LinkedIn network LinkedIn is about the most perfect social network there is for the recruitment world. While on other social networks like Facebook and Twitter, anything you post is competing with all of the reader’s other interests for attention; LinkedIn is all about work and professional development.

  • 3. GSR2R ~3~ People don’t connect with their mothers and add their holiday photos and pictures of their cat on LinkedIn. They connect with other professionals in their field, relevant service providers, people they know on a professional basis, and, in a lot of cases, recruitment consultants. LinkedIn is also designed to make it really easy for professionals with mutual acquaintances to get an introduction to each other, and for people to endorse other people’s skills. 2. Finding candidates on LinkedIn This means that when you add someone you have perhaps helped find a new job to your LinkedIn network, you can look at all of the people they know, see what kind of skills they have and who has recommended them, and then ask your contact to introduce you to them. Because your LinkedIn network shows you people who are connected to everyone you know, it expands really quickly. Phone: 020 3178 8118 |Web:http://gsr2r.com Email:hello@gsr2r.com
  • 4. GSR2R ~4~ If you find 100 people you know on there, chances are you will have an extended network of thousands or even millions of people you can search and get introductions to, giving you a whole new way to find candidates. 2. Promoting yourself on LinkedIn LinkedIn also gives you a great chance to promote yourself as a recruiter, in a way that will carry over throughout your career, rather than just in the role you are in now.
