Social Media in Recruitment:
Evolving an ‘in-house’ recruitment strategy for the 21st Century
Wednesday 7 December 2011
Holiday Inn Bloomsbury, London
In association with BrubakerHR

Commercial and non-commercial organisations from all sectors are waking up to the variety of uses that can be made of web-based 'social media'. In fact, a day rarely goes by without some new statistic about Facebook being published or an article being written about how the social web is transforming communications and interactions across the globe.

Following this general trend, recruiters and HR executives are rapidly realising that social media has the potential to revolutionise the way they go about their day-to-day work and the struggle to stay ahead of the curve in understanding, adopting and utilising new 'social recruitment' techniques has begun. Failure to fully appreciate how the 'rules of the game' have changed and take advantage of the opportunities available is likely to result in a significant competitive disadvantage in the recruitment marketplace.

SMi is proud to present, in partnership with BrubakerHR, a half-day interactive Masterclass aimed at ensuring you are armed with the knowledge, insight and technical expertise you will need to take full advantage of this exciting new area and establish your firm's capacity to attract the best recruits.
