Recruiting and retaining veterans of the armed services can add value to any organization. Yet, corporate recruiting teams can often struggle to execute on their goals to effectively find and hire veterans. HireClix, a digital recruitment marketing agency based in the Boston area, in collaboration with The Value of a Veteran, will host a new recruiting webinar “Recruiting Veterans through Social Media” on Aug. 9 at 2 p.m. EST. The free webinar will highlight the unique knowledge, qualifications and skills veterans can bring to an organization’s workforce and specific strategies on how to attract qualified veterans via social media recruiting. Free registration for the webinar is now open at http://www.hireclix.com.
“I’ve been on both sides of veteran hiring, as an employee and as a consultant to employers. Speaking from personal experience, an organization that takes a few simple steps to adapt its recruiting efforts to appeal to veterans will be much more successful and meet its hiring goals more quickly,” says Lisa Rosser, founder of The Value of a Veteran, a consultancy focused on helping employers retain and recruit veterans.
The “Recruiting Veterans through Social Recruiting” webinar will cover:
- the importance of recruiting and retaining veterans, including the value veteran employees can bring to an organization
- leveraging military keywords to recruit online and source veterans with specific skills
- how to develop Facebook and LinkedIn advertising campaigns to target veteran hires
- determining whether a Facebook fan page will be effective in recruiting veterans
