Social Media Recruiting Made Easy: A New (Free) eBook

Today, CareerBuilder released its new eBook  Will Tweet for Talent: A User’s Guide to Talent Recruitment through Social Media.

Why? Because using social media to recruit takes time…but reading about doing it doesn’t have to!

(Sorry – I couldn’t help myself with the cheesy tagline.  Obviously, that’s not the one CareerBuilder ended up going with for the eBook.)

It’s true, though: A quick and easy read, this eBook is informative without getting too bogged down with details or technical language.

Not that details don’t matter…but the purpose of the eBook isn’t meant to turn anyone into a social media “expert,”  but to provide a brief overview of social media as it relates to recruiting – with quick tips for getting started, including:

  • Where to start building a company profile
  • How to leverage various social networks to promote your business
  • The unique benefits social networking offers recruiters
  • How to set up a social media policy to protect your brand
  • How to overcome your fears about social media

Did we also mention that it’s free and really easy to download? And free?

If you’re new to using social media – whether for recruitment purposes or altogether – let this eBook be your guide to getting started. Even if you’re not new to social media, this’ll serve as a good (painless) refresher.

Another way to promote a company's job openings is by posting jobs on the company's fan page by using a Facebook application like 'Work for Us': http://bit.ly/WorkforUs
