The New Recruiting Ecosystem

Social Strategies for Talent Acquisition

The proliferation of social and professional networks makes some job boards and headhunters feel pretty old-fashioned. Professional social networks like LinkedIn and Viadeo already play a big role in talent acquisition, while companies like BranchOut, Jobvite and even Monster are building Facebook apps for hiring and career development. According to some estimates, recruiting firms consume a third of hiring budgets but produce fewer than 10 percent of the results, due to fees that range above 20 percent of salaries.

Startups and growing companies seeking executives and managers as well as established businesses looking to fill new professional positions need to understand how to use these various recruiting tools, platforms and services effectively.
