  • Time Management Tips• Set Time Limits – just like with anything else, schedule time blocks for Social Media Recruitment work. Don’t stray – when time’s up? Put it away & come back to it after hours.• Remember to set small blocks during the day (5-15 min) to engage in responding to things posted to you by your network.• Go through what your network has posted & post responses to them before & after work or during lunch/break times.
