Developing A Successful Social Media In Recruitment Strategy

How many people go to a Conference and then go away and implement what exactly they have learnt? Well Max MacGillivray, the Founder Redfox Executive Selection, did eactly that and as a result put together a successful social media recruitment strategy which had a dramatic effect on his recruitment busiess.

Max attended the first Social Media in Recruitment Conference on the 16th July 2009 and by his own admission was aware of Social Media and its potential. However, he was confused as to exactly what action to take. However, the important thing is that he did take some action and 21 months later Max is now one of the Speakers at the 2011 Social Media in Recruitment Conference where he will share his success story with delegates.

In the seven minute preview interview below you will learn how Max now successfully runs:

  • A LinkedIn group with over 1,100 members
  • Two Twitter accounts (one for jobs and one for breaking news)
  • A YouTube channel showing three different types of videos
  • A weekly email newsletter which goes out to over 8,000 people worldwide in his niche recruitment sector which is Fresh Food Products!

One of the key points that Max makes in the interview is that to be successful in Social Media you need to “give, give, give to get something in return.”

So whether you are working as a Recruitment Consultant or as an In-House Recruiter, there are some great social media learing points in the interview for everyone.

Max will be speaking at 12:20 on the 7th April and you can view the full Social Media in Recruitment Conference Programme here.
