Social Media In Recruitment Success Stories

Taylor is particularly excited that two delegates from the first Conference will be sharing the Social Media strategies they have implemented since attending the July 2009 Conference. “I have never heard of delegates from a previous event coming back as speakers for the next event and sharing their success” commented Taylor. “They have a unique story to tell and both have seen their businesses grow as a result of using social media.”

“If you are a Recruiter and you are unsure about how you should be using Social Media in Recruitment then the Conference offers an ideal opportunity for you to learn from others who are already embracing social media as part of their online recruitment strategy” continued Taylor.

Jobsite Announce Gold Sponsorship of Social Media in Recruitment Conference

We are delighted to announce that Jobsite have become the gold sponsor of the 2010 Social Media In Recruitment Conference.

Mike Taylor, Director of Web-Based-Recruitment, who organise the conference says; “We’re thrilled to have Jobsite on board as gold sponsor, particularly as they share the same sentiments as us that social media is only worth doing as part of a wider, well planned strategy.

“With over 150 recruiters looking to attend it’s a very encouraging sign for the industry that its professionals are looking to embrace new ways to recruit. We look forward to working with Jobsite and to welcoming the attendees and speakers for what promises to be another fantastic social media conference. ”

Felix Wetzel, Group Marketing Director of Jobsite, adds; “Social media is a hot topic but the danger for brands is that they jump on this bandwagon without a clear idea of what they want to get out of it. We’re sponsoring this conference as it focuses on helping recruiters understand what social media channels are right for them and how they can best utilise them to achieve their recruitment aims. We’re following this same philosophy at Jobsite and have recently launched social media activity which helps us perform better for our candidates and clients e.g. our Jobs-by-Twitter service. For us, this is when social media is most powerful.”
