Keep up with the latest hiring trends!
If you are a recruiter and are looking at social networks, Boolean string searching and cyber-headhunting and scratching your head in puzzlement, you may feel that you’re getting left behind in the game of recruitment. It’s true, the world of recruitment has changed more in the last three years than in the last twenty (thanks to Colin Coleman of Collins McNicholas for vocalising that insight!).
As recruiters, the need to stay ahead of the game to get the best talent has never been more apparent, and being ahead of the game means knowing how to use social networks, and how to source and search efficiently and effectively from masses of online intelligence and sources like LinkedIn, Google, social media profiles and blogs – all to find the candidates who will be perfect for your vacancies.
On Tuesday September 6th, Social Talent present the Certified Internet Recruiter course, in conjunction with CIPD and Irish Recruiters, in Dublin city centre. This course is aimed at both new and experienced recruiters, and gives a core understanding of recruiting through the Internet while teaching the base-line tools and techniques for direct sourcing strategies utilizing search engines, social networks, mobile devices, job-boards and candidate databases.
This course is recommended for both in-house/corporate and agency recruiters who will gain the ability to unlock the potential of the web recruitment strategy while unearthing access to new candidate information and intelligence. Furthermore, participants will take a 30-minute web-based exam to gain accreditation. When you return to your office, you will be able to confidently x-ray search the web for candidates, use field-commands and wild-card operators in your searches to bring about richer candidate data, tailor your search to international recruitment assignments, craft your own Boolean strings for every job you’re asked to fill, and automate your searches to have new information emailed to you regularly with fresh new candidates.
