Social media is increasing the rate of hiring in the United States despite sluggish growth figures according to RolePoint, a social recruiting firm based in San Francisco and London that provide a complete social recruiting suite that provides unrivalled access and reach to quality job candidates.
RolePoint say that despite weak job creation figures for the first quarter of 2013, job hunters who effectively market themselves using social media tools such as Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter have a real advantage over others applying to similar positions. Additionally using social media platforms allow applicants to follow companies they are interested in working for online and learning valuable information about them that can be used effectively in an interview.
However, an equally important responsibility for job seekers is building and maintaining a large professional network and getting to know people in the desired industry. With employee referrals now increasingly acknowledged as one of the best sources of corporate hiring, many companies are now rushing to implement or revamp their employee referral programs by implementing the latest software with social metrics and analytics. RolePoint claim such methods are reducing the transaction costs of recruitment and making hiring the right candidates less risky, therefore encouraging companies to take on more of the right staff.
Rolepoint’s powerful employee referral software helps companies find the right candidates both easily and quickly. By using existing employees as recruitment ambassadors, it harnesses their professional networks to find the best applicants. With their services becoming more and more popular among hiring companies, candidates with engaging online profiles often stand out from the crowd. Many believe that services such as LinkedIn are now more important than the traditional resume as mapping professional relationships online become more transparent.
Recently launched social recruiting platform RolePoint is set to revolutionize the way companies organize their staffing solutions. It has been developed as a powerful tool designed to help find talented candidates within existing employees’ social networks.
