Social technologies are the wave of the future. These trends and new mediums will continue to grow with or without you. But what if you could harness the power of social media for your company and its recruitment and retention efforts instead of becoming obsolete in a changing world or losing control to the power of crowds?
Sound overwhelming? Not sure where to start? You are not alone. With so many options and technologies to learn from, there isn’t necessarily a predefined first step. The point is that you do something and then build upon your actions as you continue to learn.
A great way for you to start getting exposure is creating a presence on Facebook, and CareerBuilder.com can help you get started.

Facebook and CareerBuilder.com’s extensive partnership provides a large presence through custom Facebook pages, applications, advertisements, and more.
