3 Benefits of Leveraging Social Media as Part of your Recruiting Process

Happy Social Media Day, everyone!

As we all know, social media is a powerful tool for attracting and engaging with our audience. A social media strategy is crucial to every business in this digital era, as it is an incredible way to reach out to new candidates—and ultimately, hire the right ones.

Here are three benefits of leveraging social media as part of your recruiting process:


Increase visibility and brand awareness.

Existing online and having a web presence is not enough. While a social media strategy may vary in its primary goals, it is a common objective to build engagement that will boost the visibility of your company’s content, therefore driving attention to available jobs.


Research your applicants before you meet them.

Prior to connecting with a potential candidate, take the time to learn about their background. Doing some research early on will deliver a better applicant experience and reduce time/cost per hire by filtering out applicants who may not fit the role or are not a good cultural fit for your company.


Expand the reach with your team’s support.

No matter the size of your company, it takes a community of people with the same goals and mindset to accomplish your objective. Social media is exactly that, social. When your team shares your social content and available jobs on their social profiles, they are helping increase awareness, enable company trustworthiness, and boost engagement and reach.
