Is Your Social Recruiting A Work of Art or a Blank Canvas?

October 1, 2013 1:55 pm Published by Kristen Smith

The world of social recruiting is, for all intents and purposes, still in its infancy. There are a lot of unknowns: how do I reach candidates? How do I build engagement? What will my return on investment be? How much (time/energy/money) will I need to invest? 

These unknowns make up the blank canvas of too many companies and recruiters’ social media recruiting strategies–so we’re giving away “free art lessons” in order to move you closer into your personal social recruiting renaissance: 

Introducing the Social Recruiting Score!

By simply inputting your email address and company name, you’ll be able to step back and see the whole canvas of your social recruiting strategy: from the areas that catch the light and sparkle to the areas that might need a new coat of paint. 

Your score is based on your Social Reach (how many candidates you can influence on Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter), your Mobile Compatibility (how well your careers can be accessed from a mobile device), and your Referral Opportunity (how your employee network can increase the viral spread of your careers to the right people). 

The Social Recruiting Score also offers you a “paint-by-numbers” opportunity: every piece of your score is accompanied by an actionable tip or tactic for improving your social and mobile recruiting.
