  • Are there any HR or recruiting people here? Who I am…
  • Bring people to you. Best recruiting method is to have a solid employment brand.APCO as an example – Washingtonian’s best places to work list… Disclaimer! Gotta have the goods to back it up though. if you’re not a great place to work, twitter won’t save you.
  • Getting and staying on the list can be tough.
  • We’ll get into specifics of things you can actually tweet about in a bit… but another reason to use Twitter for hiring – and it overlaps a little bit with the first reason…Puts a face on the organization. I haven’t seen candidates using Twitter to ask the status of their resume or post-interview. Mostly just letting me know they applied and that they are excited. Impact of being accessible is what really matters.
  • authentic. show personality.
  • but once you find would-be candidates… what do you do? finding them and following them isn’t enough…story about how I met my last boyfriend because of twitter – and if you can meet a BF, you can turn a tweeter into a candidate for a job.
