Summary Sunday is my way of highlighting the stand-out job search and career articles shared across social channels over the past week. I read and follow the work of recruiters, Human Resources pros, social media influencers and many others to stay current on the trends!
The ONLY Post I Want You To Read
If you have been avoiding social networks, either out of stubbornness or ignorance, here is evidence to help you see why this is increasingly important to your career and job search.
The topic of this post is social recruiting. Glassdoor asked 10 corporate recruiters how candidates can get on a their radar and what candidates have done to WOW them. Here’s one example:
Carolyn Eiseman, Director, Employer Brand, Enterprise Rent-A-Car
How would someone get on your radar?
Social recruiting is a critical component of our hiring strategy, candidates can engage with us on any of our career social profiles. It is a great way to find a local recruiter, learn more about Enterprise, ask questions and ultimately fill out the required online application.
Was there a candidate that totally wow-ed you and if yes, how did they do it?
While we get significant engagement through our social career platforms, we would love to see more candidates interact in a more innovative way, such as using hash tags, or presenting a more unique look at the skills they can bring to Enterprise.
Did you read that? Are you hearing this? They want more candidates to interact!
Go read the full post and learn more about how you can stand out and wow your future employer! Using social networks is so much more effective for you than applying for a job through an applicant tracking system!
