You Should Recruit on Social Media. Here's Why.

Social Media is how 92% of recruiters find new job prospects. It's a tool that continues to outshine job boards, advertisements for positions, and employee referrals.

Think about the number of times you've checked your phone before falling asleep or scrolled through your feed first thing in the morning before hitting the bathroom to brush your teeth. The common denominator for why Social Media helps to make the world go round lies within the need to stay connected with friends and family, share information, learn new skills, or be entertained. 

  • Businesses are learning to meet people where they are online to fill open positions. 
  • There's a newer trend of job seekers who know this and are marketing themselves online to be seen and connect with recruiters using Social Media strategically.

How it's relevant: Gen Z are leaders in changing how we recruit and hire online. This generation prefers to land jobs by showing a full scope of who they are, personally and professionally, with the help of Social Media. 

  • Gen Z job seekers see their value; they go in the opposite direction of what's formal, are creative with content, and believe in showing up authentically. 

What it really means for businesses: The traditional way of hiring is broken, and companies are struggling with resumes and cover letters.
