This infographic was originally published on Mashable. Facebook, with over 850-million potential candidates and candidate’s friend network as potential referrals, is a goldmine of untapped recruiting opportunities.
So you’ve got a great job that’s waiting to be filled at your company, and you decide you want to tap into the already measured power of social media recruiting. You start to wrestle with the big kahuna, LinkedIn, and you’re also covering niche social media sites for your industry. But you may be ignoring an intensely powerful tool hiding right under your nose — Facebook. The social media mega-site has proven successful for snapping up young professionals, but it can be a great resource for finding talent at any level.
Facebook is a great way to start building a talent community of candidates who are interested in working with your company. In this infographic by HireRabbit, you would see why Facebook recruiting is important and what you can do to build a great community.
According to HireRabbit, 48% of all job seekers (and 63% of those with a profile) did social media job hunting on Facebook in the past year. That’s a lot of eyes searching for opportunities, and if your brand is already active on the network, it could be worth engaging power users to recommend applicable candidates.
