This week has been an absolute dream for social recruiters. Mostly because of all the buzz around Jobvite’s 2014 Social Recruiting Survey. In fact, almost all of this week’s article are in response to it.
So I should probably go read it now…
This survey is a font of knowledge for anyone in the business of hiring.
It’s full of interesting tidbits about how today’s job seekers are using social media, and how recruiters are responding.
Jobvite’s survey is free, but you must give them your info in order to access it… and it’s really long!
If you don’t have all day, then check out:

It seems like everyone’s on a Jobvite kick this week! This article from Human Resources Online interprets the results from Jobvite’s survey to better understand the social media disconnect between recruiters/human resources and job seekers.
The author shares some interesting thoughts and ideas about the survey, instead of just summarizing its findings.
Identify, Follow, Share, And Engage, these are the key factors for effective social recruiting according to Alexandra Vornle.
Her article is a wonderful follow up to all this research as it provides simples steps for anyone looking to make their hiring process a little more social.
Or, if your application process sucks, then no amount of social recruiting can save you.
Katrina Collier’s article is an excellent reminder that the process of directing candidates from your Facebook job ad to the application “landing page” is as important as the ad itself.
She goes on to provide some excellent tips for improving this part of the recruiting process.
It’s a must read!
