Recruitment through Social Media - On Going Trends

Nowadays, recruiting candidates have become harder and challenging than before. In the increased competition for high talent among job seekers, the companies have been forced to improve their policies and modernize their recruitment policies.

The biggest trend that has been recruited in the last decade is the emergence of social media to attract and transform talent. The study has also received its 'elderly' recruitment - 'social recruitment' - but this human resource has almost retained and social media has done the same. And these are modern organizations who have taken advantage of these changes which have been the most benefit. Therefore, it is important for companies (especially small businesses) to actively use social media in recruitment efforts. But to get the best ROI, recruitment leaders need to be appointed at the top of the latest trends in the social media world.

Here are some of the features on social medias:-

Facebook has recently introduced the Job Tabs feature which allows companies to post their open roles using a status update tool on their business page. Job listings appear in a new tab and the applicant can send their personal information directly through messenger.

Instagram has also been made by some major changes, including the features of Instagram stories and inevitable messages. With these new features, recruiters can share more spontaneous moments from their company's lives to get interested candidates interested in recruiting.

Twitter frequently publishes new features such as moments and connected tabs. Recent changes in the Twitter interface allow you to include more than 140 characters in your Tweets and correct notifications on your timeline. These features help define your content to attract your followers.
