  4. 4. How are recruiters currently finding talent?
  5. 5. Recruiters must build relationships • ability to find great people and build The relationships with them should be the core competence of every recruiter. This is what all great recruiters do. Recruiters within organizations need to get out of the organization and get to know people at all levels and professions who might be useful to their firm. They need to use technology to help create the initial relationship, and then they need to leverage that by using social media including Twitter, blogs, websites, and anything else that will create authentic interaction with a potential candidate. • Kevin Wheeler May 8, 2009, 5:55 am ET
  6. 6. 5 New Recruiter Skills for Success by Kevin Wheeler May 8, 2009, 5:55 am ET
  7. 7. SEO The adoption of consumer marketing principles to recruiting. • Replacing individual postings will be search engine optimized talent hubs, where candidates can search for jobs by class and company (e.g., all Flash developers at Google). • These are company- and job-specific niche boards that will replace the need for aggregators and all public boards. At these sites prospects can submit resumes, be funneled to specific openings, or just be followers.
  8. 8. Social Recommendation • Skip to Time 409 to 610 • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l-w- 1Et2E5g&feature=related
  9. 9. Employee referral programs • It's also obvious that your best employees have heard of, or personally know, the best people in your industry and in their field of expertise. • Tapping into this network through a employee referral program will be a critical component of tomorrow's programs
  10. 10. Time of possession will become the dominant recruiting metric for hiring top people • The sourcing sweet spot of the near future will be to get these people to call you on the first day they decide to get serious about considering a new career opportunity. • It's pretty obvious that those candidates found on day one are of higher quality than those found after they've been looking 2-3 weeks. (Note: good recruiting agencies are already doing this.)

  18. 18. Social Media Restrictions - What Workers Should Know Before They Post Social media has become pervasive for personal and business use. Sixty-one percent of full-time workers reported they have a social networking profile. Among them: • Half of workers (51 percent) spend time on their social networking page during the workday; 11 percent spend one hour or more. • 25 percent include information about their employer in their communications on social networking sites such as Facebook and MySpace; 15 percent include company information on Twitter; 13 percent of workers with personal blogs say they blog about their companies. • 13 percent of workers are "friends" with their boss on their social networking profile. • 22 percent of workers have separate social networking profiles for personal and business use. • With social media becoming a key avenue for employers to promote their brands, products and services and job opportunities, companies are taking a closer look at how messages about the company are communicated. • 37 percent of employers have a policy on whether workers can communicate about the company on social media sites; 17 percent have implemented a stricter policy on employees communicating about the company on social media sites in the last year. • 21 percent prohibit employees from communicating about the company. Thirteen percent have designated certain employees to post on behalf of the company. • 16 percent monitor social networking profiles of employees and 14 percent monitor blogs. • Internet Usage Nearly three-in-five workers (58 percent) admitted they use the Internet for non-work related activities while at the office. Twenty-one percent will typically spend one hour or more on personal Internet use while at work. Workers are advised to limit their Internet searches to those related to work or to designate their lunch hour or break time for these activities. • 20 percent of employers have fired someone for using the Internet for non-work related activities. • 5 percent of employers have fired someone for holiday shopping online at work. • Half of employers (50 percent) block employees from accessing certain Web sites while at work.

The more followers, the more information comes to the giver to distribute, which in turn builds more followers. The process cannot be commanded or controlled; followers opt in and out as they choose. The results are transparent and purely quantitative; network size is all that matters. Networks of this sort are self- organizing and democratic but without any collective interaction.

It‟s fast to come up with these – use quotes, facts from your industry, great pictures, ideas on other people they can follow.
  52. 52. 4 Steps to Find Your Ideal Job on Twitter • http://blog.brand-yourself.com/2009/4- steps-to-find-your-ideal-job-on-twitter/
  53. 53. How do I use twitter for the Job search • Step 1: Identify Your Brand’s Keywords • Do a search on yourself and see what comes up. You may find someone with your name has coveted the top fold. From there, identify what keywords you can use to differentiate yourself from this person. Should you be using your full name? Your middle initial? Your affiliation with an organization or a type of work? Figure out how you want people to find you so you can build your brand around these keywords. • Step 2: Become a Blog Reader & Commenter • Begin reading career-related content on blogs for 10 minutes daily. This will help you stay-up-to date and in-the-know. Then, start posting thoughtful, well-written, professional comments on these blogs related to your field of interest. Don‟t know where to find these blogs? Go to www.AllTop.com – they are like a magazine rack of online blogs. There, you‟ll be able to find dozens of blogs related to your career aspirations so that you can post comments to enhance your credibility as a knowledgeable member of your field/industry. Better still, if you are reading this, you are on a blog RIGHT NOW. So, take 2 extra minutes to post a comment and you‟ll be on your way.
  54. 54. • To keep the process simple, batch your tips and advice. I use www.TweetLater.com to schedule my timeless tweets, and space them out evenly throughout the day. HINT: The most active Twitter days are Monday through Wednesday and the peak Twitter times are early afternoon (noon, specifically). You could spend 25-35 minutes a week writing advice or 5 minutes a day to take advantage of this form of engagement. • Answer questions (time spent per day: 5 minutes) • I use Twitter‟s search engine to find questions in my area of expertise. Let‟s say I wanted to brand myself as an MBA Application Consultant. I would use the search term “GMAT ?” • You can subscribe to any search terms you want via RSS by using “Feed for this Query” on the right sidebar. It‟s really important to choose your queries wisely. The trick is to a) pick a search term that is very specific and b) include the question mark – this particular query only produces two to three items per day. 30-Minute Brand Building for Twitter | Personal Branding Blog personalbrandingblog.com/30-minute-brand-building-for-twitter/
  55. 55. RT or Retweet • One of the greatest aspects of Twitter is how quickly word of mouth spreads globally. If a user thinks another users tweet is interesting, they may choose to retweet what they say. In this instance, the member will repeat what the twitter user said. Example: “Did Jeremiah got a doctorate in Twitter?” if a second user sees this and agrees, they will echo it back in the following way: “Retweet: @Jowyang Did Jeremiah got a doctorate in Twitter?”. In a shortened version, they may also use RT, an abbreviated version of Retweet, it would go like this: “RT: Did Jeremiah got a doctorate in Twitter?”. And in case you‟re wondering, no I didn‟t get a doctorate in Twitter, but I did get my undergrad in Twitter.
