We just read this terrific post “Social Media Talent Wars“. Its basically a mantra about using social media (aka…blogs, podcasts, social networks) to recruit the next generation workforce. This particular quotes says it best;
“The modern workforce is very used to using blogs, podcasts and other social media tools in their personal lives. It becomes a near impossible stretch for them to lead interactive, digitized lives at home and shift to low-tech, paper-based, one-sided communication in the office. It just doesn’t translate.”
The job market is changing and companies must begin to add social media as part of their recruiting strategy.
