Skip the complex traditional recruitment process and start hiring in just a few clicks

GoHire’s social media recruiting software helps you share your jobs to the online platforms where top talent hangs out.

What is social recruiting, and is it effective?

Whether you call it social media recruiting, social media recruitment or just plain old social recruiting, it’s all about using social media platforms to grow your team.

With this strategy, you can use LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and others to share job postings and network and engage with potential candidates – as well as do due diligence on professionals who have applied for openings at your company.

Social media recruiting is one of the easiest and most effective ways to find and hire top talent. Billions of people use these platforms daily and job postings are bound to catch the eye of at least a few qualified candidates.

Even if they’re just passively looking at roles.
In the long run, posting to these networks and interacting with candidates will increase your brand’s visibility and reputation. With better brand awareness, you’ll be able to attract more top talent and build a high-performing team.

How do you recruit through social media?

There are a few tricks and tips that you can use in your social recruiting efforts that will increase the chances of finding and hiring the best people for your jobs. 
We’ve put together a quick, five-point guide that will help you to make the most of your social media recruitment:

  • Choose your platforms: Every social media site works differently, so your approach needs to be different for each. Rather than wasting time trying to manage multiple platforms, choose channels where the candidates you’re looking for are likely to be searching for jobs.
  • Build your brand: Social media is great for building brand awareness, which will help you attract the best candidates. Be sure to set up a business page with your logo and company details. This makes your business searchable and allows candidates to learn more about your work and culture.
  • Take advantage of hashtags: Hashtags are a great way to get your job ads in front of candidates who don’t follow your brand on social media. Adding relevant, specific tags (like the city you work in or the type of role) to your posts will make them easily searchable.
  • Get involved: If you want your business to be thought of as a preferred employer, you’ll need to get its name out there. That means interacting with other users and participating in conversations that are relevant to what you do.
  • Make connections: While community engagement is great, nothing beats a personal connection. LinkedIn’s research shows that 90% of users are willing to talk to recruiters, even if they’re not actively looking for a role. So candidate outreach is always a good idea. 

Frequently asked questions about social media recruiting

Which social media platform is best for recruiting?

Whether you choose to use Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, or another channel for your social recruiting, it doesn’t make too much of a difference. What matters is that the platform you choose works for your business.

The key here is that you do your homework and find out which types of candidates use each platform and whether they fit the profile of the talent you’re looking to hire.

What are the disadvantages of social media recruitment?

Social media is a powerful recruitment tool, but there are a few disadvantages to using these platforms to find candidates.

One of the biggest pitfalls of social media recruiting is that social media profiles can be misleading. Users naturally want to put their best foot forward on these channels (especially if they’re searching for employment), so their online presence may not give a complete picture of their personality and abilities.

Another drawback is bias. When you’re using social media as a recruitment tool, you’re able to see pictures of the candidate, investigate the types of groups they belong to, and look at the content they share. This can spark unconscious bias that excludes potential candidates from the hiring pool.
