Social networks like Linked-In, MySpace and Facebook, are popping up everywhere. They are significantly changing the way companies source candidates and how candidates find out about opportunities in the marketplace. One major change is the way candidates learn the inside story about a company’s culture and what it might be like to work for a potential employer. Such information can give candidates the upper hand by allowing them to create a resume to fit a particular job. As a result recruiters must be better screeners and interviewers in order to get the best people…and this is just the tip of the iceberg!
Dr. Garritan is leading the way in HR Innovation. In this presentation he will:
•Provide an overview of what a social network is, including its advantages and limitations.
•Show how employers can use social networks to counteract some of the advantages that prospective employees have already gained leveraging these networks.
•Present some of the unique staffing scenarios that have emerged as a result of the new social networks, including legal and other implications for employers.
•Share insights about the next generation of social networking, because believe it or not, it is already here!
Attend this presentation and leave with insight that will better prepare you to fully participate in your organizations decision-making regarding how to best leverage social networks in your recruiting process.
