Not Sure How to Use Social Media to Mine for Talent? Have No Fear. NetSourcing Is Here!
According to MarketWatch.com, social media is a really big deal, especially since they suggest that 60% of employed professionals interested in a job change don’t even bother to put their resumes on job boards these days. These professionals are, however, present and active on LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and other social media sites. Being able to strategically use all available Internet hiring resources is what it takes to find individuals who have the skills and talent you are looking for, but who aren’t necessarily actively looking for a job.
In Comes NetSourcing
We are thrilled to introduce to you our newest offering, NetSourcing. It’s a revolutionary way to mine for talent on the Internet that taps the best tools social media has to offer. While “active recruiting” methods like placing job advertisements can be a great way to find the right candidate for your open position, with today’s technology and the breadth of available social networking options, the search for talent can truly take on a new, targeted approach. The best practices for finding talent these days include “passive recruiting”—attracting and inviting individuals who may have the exact skill set you are looking for, but who aren’t actively involved in looking for a new job right now.
With NetSourcing, hireVision will conduct various types of outreach using social media tools and job boards to specifically target individuals in your area(s) of interest and invite them to consider your position. By reaching out directly to prospective candidates, we take advantage of the ripple effect created by social networking, and increase the odds that you may find the right person to meet all of your unique hiring needs. Consider it this century’s version of “employee referrals” but with a much further reach!
hireVision does not employ unskilled placement agents; we are a team of highly educated HR professionals who work in your best interest to seek out talent that meet your requirements, vs. seek out candidates to make a placement. We also don’t receive placement fees or commissions, so you only pay for the work we do.
NetSourcing can be bundled with our DirectView Hiring Management Services, or it can be a stand-alone service. The choice is yours.
