Google+ Features for Recruiters

Google+ - that formidable bit of kit that you feel a little weird about?
The kit that often leaves me feeling “all the gear no idea?” when I look at some recruiters and their approach to it.

Perhaps (you’re normal) and can’t quite put your finger on what it will do for you?

Not sure if it should be part of your “mix”?

I attended InboundUK last year and the massively influential (LinkedIn Influencer) Gary Vaynerchuk was a keynote speaker.

Someone in the audience had the audacity ask about Google+.

Time slowed down…
I held my breath…
I’d been waiting for someone to talk “sense” about it…

Yes, it’s clever, beautifully built (in my humble view), stands on everyone’s shoulders, is linked to every system (it seems) out there…

But a recruiting system? Really? Do recruiters, who on the whole really haven’t got to grips with LinkedIn, Twitter and their own internal CRM/ATS, really have time for ANOTHER social system…?

And Gary said…
I’m waiting for Google+ to become important
I flippin’ fell off of my chair.
Oh, go on then!

It would be remiss of me to totally blank Google+ - I do use it myself – I really like it.
It has some “cool” features. It’s a very “connected” system. Yes, it’s more “social” than LinkedIn, but in the real world the average candidate and clients is more “G+” (informal) than “LinkedIn” (formal) in terms of their normal behaviour…

So why is it so good?
