As a recruiter, you’re all about finding the right person for the right job at the right time and the quality of your talent pipeline is what makes you successful!

You depend on access to several mediums to find the best candidates, and for many this includes social media.

But how do you decide which of the many social media platforms and sites are right for you and your organization? And how do you stay current?

Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, YouTube to name a few are all great resources for sourcing and recruiting. Each platform has its own unique demographic and you’ll want to consider each audience when making the decision as to which application(s) will give you the best results in your sourcing and recruiting efforts.
