Class Description: Facebook is the most important social network to find passive candidates. The reach of the network (at least 3 times that of LinkedIn) coupled with the sheer amount of time candidates spend on the site suggest you have to know the secrets to contacting jobseekers. New filters and new targeting options inside Facebook make the site a must have in the recruiter's toolkit.
This presentation is the introductory class, intended to give you the tools to find candidates and connect with them today. This will be a point-by-point demonstration best learned when the participant is sitting at their computer to follow along.
A recent survey made the claim that more people cite Facebook as the source of their hire than LinkedIn. We're going to explore how to make that true for your company.
In this 90 minute webinar you will learn:
- Powerful new searches using Facebook Graph Search
- How to use the new filters to build call lists
- What candidates put on Facebook when they're looking for work
- How to build org charts for companies
- How to use your profile without giving away your privacy
- Messages that generate responses
- Alternate contact strategies for passive candidates in a variety of disciplines.
- How to differentiate your private and business use of Facebook.
