Social Media For HR – Now & Next [Interview With Laurie Ruettimann]

I’m on vacation this week – well as much of a vacation as a self-employed person can take – and I’m coming down from a fantastic month of attending and speaking at conferences, as well as connecting with a ton of new professional relationships and long-time social media friends!

However, I wanted to take a moment to share this great Q&A led by Curtis Midkiff with my friend and Cynical GirlLaurie Ruettimann – from The Hive at the 2012 SHRM Annual Conference. Watch this brief video (email subscribers click through to view) to learn more about:

  • Tips for HR pros who want to get involved with social media for their job.
  • How to find usable info on Twitter
  • Using social media to facilitate connecting with professional relationships online – and offline
  • Is Twitter a credible source of information?
  • How do you use social media to connect different generations (or can you)?
  • Are you doing it wrong by using social media as part of the hiring process?
  • What’s coming next? (Hint: Going retro.)

You can also learn how women like Laurie’s Mom are using Facebook. Now that’s money right there.

  1. Love it! Nice to see put some faces to the blog posts. In HR we need more peeps like Laurie. I totally need to get to SHRM13 next year in Chicago.

      Thanks for all that you do for me and many other in the HR/Recruiting/blogging/cat world!

  3. Money line: “Take the decorum that you use at your job daily and apply it to social media.” Simple, yet fantastic advice!
