Last week I shared how important social media and networking are to many recruiters, even those who are looking to fill hourly jobs in retail, construction, hospitality and healthcare. Here are some great practical nuggets I learned at last week’s speech:
Don’t Rely on job boards – Some of the recruiters I heard last week said that they are starting to move away from job boards. Their complaints: too crowded and too difficult to differentiate themselves. Job boards like Monster still contain a lot of great jobs, and you should include them in your search. Just don’t believe that Monster is a one-stop shop.
