Social media is increasingly becoming a popular tool for recruiting talent. In fact, Twitter is one of the best social networks for recruiting bright and savvy professionals.
Twitter is more than a network for talking about trending topics and interacting with high-profile brands, it’s also a tool for recruiting candidates and hiring top talent. Last year, 55 percent of employers said Twitter was one of the top social networks for recruiting, according to Jobvite’s 2013 Social Recruiting Survey.
Employers can use Twitter chats to discover and connect with clued-in and passionate talent. They can also use chats to share job postings, promote their employer brand, and follow up with talent for video interviews.
Employers hoping to connect with the brightest individuals in their industry can use Twitter chats to hire talent in these ways:
1. Use the right hashtags and follow conversations. To target top talent, employers must learn how to use the right hashtags for their industry. It’s also important to participate in the right chat community. Employers can discover these hashtags through the Twitter chat schedule and by making note of commonly used hashtags by other industry professionals.
By using the right hashtags for their industry, employers can participate in ongoing industry conversations, discover talent and make Twitter communities excited about their company.
