Webinar: Web 2.0

When I was asked recently about the top three trends in recruiting, my first answer was Web 2.0 Recruiting. So, when the time came to create this month’s webinar schedule, this topic was a must-have. I have noticed that many of the questions, discussions, and articles on ERE focus on Web 2.0 recruiting. These sites are so appealing because they allow candidates interactivity and a level of input through chat, blogs, discussions, and networking.

Love it or hate it, Web 2.0 is here to stay. According to a recent ERE article, “Compete.com’s recently released figures on the number of visitors to social networks show LinkedIn growing by over 700% in one year, Facebook by 77%, and Twitter by more than 4,000%”. There is no doubt these sites are growing like crazy! But one question I keep hearing is “how do we use these sites to find quality candidates?” I wish I knew this answer myself. The bad news is I don’t. The good news is I found someone who does…Kevin Wheeler.
