Social media and technology
We are all becoming more connected and more social in our interactions and this is extending to the way we converse about work and jobs. Social media has made it easy to pass on information and insights about employment opportunities. Tapping into people’s social networks vastly expands the pool of possible job candidates. It also makes the job-search exercise less a private pursuit and more of a shared experience. The power and the speed of this transformation is having a significant impact on recruiting techniques, but is sometimes overlooked by managers and employers.
