Since media recruiting is becoming the new norm, we’re trying to help CNAs and caregivers polish their online presence, so as to attract more recruiters
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) November 21, 2012
There has been a large shift from the traditional hiring and recruiting process for employers from the year 2010 to 2012 in which many recruiters are now using social media to prospect potential candidates.Harris Interactive reports that as many as 37% of employers are actively using social media to recruit, while 92% of companies have at one time used it, meaning job seekers must keep this in mind when engaging on their online accounts.
The healthcare industry still lags behind in this new trend - only 28% of total recruiters using media are healthcare employers. But an online appearance can still have consequences for caregivers and CNAs. 65% of employers say that they check media to find out if the candidate presents him/herself professionally while 45% say they view it to learn more about the candidate’s qualifications. Both of these can have big implications for CNAs and caregivers as employers specifically look for professionalism and quality when hiring CNAs and caregivers.
“Since media recruiting is becoming the new norm, we’re trying to help CNAs and caregivers polish their online presence, so as to attract more recruiters,” says Trevor Jones, Recruitment Squad Manager at myCNAjobs. “It’s important to know recruitment strategies so you can put yourself in the best possible position to be hired,” he adds.
