“The Plan is Stick to the Plan”

When it comes to social recruiting, and social media in general, planning is usually referred to as strategy.

I have not broken it yet, although I have shaken my fist at it quite a bit.

A huge part of any social recruiting strategy is a Facebook Career Page. Jobcast is an amazing tool for creating a branded Career Page on Facebook. Oh, and by ‘great’, I mean BEST ever! True, completely unbiased, fact 😛
