Social Media – A helpful way for online employee recruitment

Who lays the foundation of a great company?


And where do you find these “great employees”?

On social media sites!

That’s right, gone are those days where employers had to publish their requirements in an employment news paper and wait for applications to drop in. Gone are those days, where your HR manager finds it almost impossible to stumble upon the exact talent she was looking for. Gone are those days when the employers invest a buck load of money on recruitment staff to take care of recruitment!

Forming a great company begins with hiring great people, and social media provides an easy way to directly discover, research and connect great caliber employees.

What does social media do?
Social media satisfies the top two recruitment priorities,  reducing costs and reducing time to hire irrespective of the size of the company.
