Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) April 27, 2009
NAS Interactive, a division of NAS Recruitment Communications, announced that it will team up with LinkedIn to present "Using Social Networking as Part of Your Talent Sourcing Strategy," a special webinar to be hosted May 5th at 2:00 p.m. EST.
Kevin Hawkins, National Internet Strategist for NAS, and Brandon Salom, Partner Relationship Sales Manager for LinkedIn, will co-host the hour-long presentation. Those attending the session will learn how many HR organizations are already successfully using these powerful Web 2.0 environments to reach candidates, as well as how to use LinkedIn's platforms and solutions.
This webinar will also explore how proactive organizations use Social Networks to coordinate recruiter activities in order to find and engage quality talent. Participants will learn how job listings are virally promoted to reach "perfect fit" candidates; why personalized, network-driven connections increase quality lead generation; and how Social Networks allow candidates to learn about you as an employer without feeling like they're being marketed to.
"Social networking is a necessary component for today's employee recruitment strategies," said Kevin Hawkins, "particularly when you need to reach out to people with highly specialized skills. Professional and social communities like LinkedIn are where HR goes to look for top talent. NAS Interactive helps clients to build their own niche community and extend their brand presence in unique ways within the SNS space."
In fact, social networking sites, such as LinkedIn, Facebook, MySpace, Twitter and Tagged, have become a cultural phenomenon that transcends age or computer proficiency. Today, college students, working parents, seniors, executives, professionals…57% of all active online users--over 130 million people--are members of at least one social network. And that makes these sites fertile ground for recruiters.
