Social Media in Recruitment Conference: Three Years Old Today

How time flies! Three years ago (on the 16th July 2009) I launched Europe’s first Social Media in Recruitment Conference.

At the time people were trying to get to grips with exactly what Social Media was all about, whether it would last and whether it would work in recruitment?

Three years later and Social Media is definitely here to stay and companies have successfully used Social Media to attract, engage and recruit new employees.

The following infographic shows the growth in social media between the fist conference in July 2009 and the latest one in April 2012.

And here is some video feedback from the 2012 Conference:

So what about the next three years?

So much has happened in three short years with Social Media now being accepted as part of the recruitment marketing mix.

However, anything can change in the future, with new players entering the market and who knows, maybe existing players being overtaken?

One thing is for sure, there will definitely be change, including changes to our Social Media in Recruitment Conference in 2013! More details will be released soon, so watch this space!
