Facebook recruiting tip #1

This is the first of several posts on recruiting with Facebook.

Create a group on Facebook. “Federated Media is Hiring” is the perfect example of what I mean. Post your apply info, list your latest jobs, build the group into a marketing tool.

As people join the group you can send broadcast messages to them alerting them to news and new jobs. It’s a chance for you to establish relationships with young candidates who are interested in what you have to say.

Think of a Facebook group as an extension of your company career site. Use the same kind of content and consider adding unique content for the Facebook audience (internship opportunities, video, etc.)

  1. Ditto on the comment by Chris. I also took your adivce and created a group call Granite Telecom is Hiring. I was already a facebook member (only because it’s the easiest way to communicate with my 20 year old niece!. I had been slow to try this but your tips pushed me to give it a shot…Happy Holidays and Thanks!
