No Headcount for Social Recruiting? How to Get the Funds You Need
Posted By Jody Ordioni On April 15, 2013 @ 12:37 am In Advice and How-Tos | 4 Comments
It appears that social recruiting is here to stay. The social recruiting site options are growing in number (I pity the person managing a global social recruiting campaign) and the expectations for a great candidate experience are mounting.
While most of the surveys, statistics, and comments I’ve read from Jobvite , CareerXroads and ERE  (there are already 18 articles this year with the tag social recruiting ) seem to indicate that the jury is still out on its effectiveness, one thing’s for sure. To do it well takes a passion, a strategy, and a lot of time. And time is a commodity.
There are many lucky companies who have dedicated support people to manage the process, but most of the corporate recruiters in my network either squeeze it in among other tasks, or assign it to their latest intern. In either of those two cases, strategy may fall to the wayside.
As you plan budgets and headcounts, here are two very compelling arguments that you might be able to present to your CFO to get some dollars to support your social efforts.
Good luck and let me know how you did.
