Social computing is a very hot topic right now. It is estimated that well over 100-million people in the United States alone have set up one or more profiles on social networking sites like Facebook, MySpace, Friendster and LinkedIn. Add to that market people in Asia, Europe and the Middle East, and it is safe to say that a good percentage of the world's talent supply is indexed by one or more social networks. Research by Forrester tells us that a greater concentration of social computing users are professionals with advanced education, and that they are open to being recruited via their networks. However, many recruiters have tried and failed to recruit via social computing, spending hours setting up profiles here and there, searching for talent, making introductions, and getting nothing in response. If social computing is the panacea for recruiting that everyone claims it to be, how do you leverage social networking tools effectively?
During this interactive session with renowned global thought leader and corporate advisor, Dr. John Sullivan, we will dive into the why's, what's, and how's related to sourcing via social networks.
