Social media has brought about a revolution in the way recruitment takes places. With more employers using social media platforms such as LinkedIn YouTube Twitter and Facebook it is much easier to connect with potential employers and vice versa. For jobseekers the rules of social recruitment are all there to see and thus the traditional paper CV is becoming less influential as part of the jobseeker’s credentials.
Speaking after the workshop Dr Gege Gatt said “The way that employers business administrators and other professionals displayed their keenness towards new and advanced methods of social recruitment is a positive step towards embracing the future. The engagement and level of interaction was of a high level and the attendees showed that they are very interested in alternative and modern methods of social recruitment that ultimately leads to a better flow of information about their candidates”.
