4 ways social recruiting technology has changed recruitment

We have outlined how you can use social recruiting technology to your advantage.

Finding the right candidate for the right role has always been the most sought-after requirement of recruiting. So, thanks to social recruiting technology, it is easier than ever to succeed in the recruitment quest.


Recruiters no longer have to sift through a sea of CVs to find the perfect match for the job. Now, social recruiting has made it 10xs easier to find the ideal candidate allowing them to interact with the right candidates.

This post aims to help you along your recruitment journey. We highlight the steps you can take to ensure you get noticed by recruiters!

1.       Look out for short job postings

Along with smartphones and up-to-the-minute newsfeeds have come shorter attention spans. When reading online, people want their information – including job vacancies – in bite-sized chunks.

For example, stick Detail2Recruitment into the search bar to take a look at our current vacancies – we’ve kept them short and sweet – Don’t forget to check our LinkedIn and Facebook too!

2.       Mobile is a must

We understand that people are no longer sitting waiting for the Sunday paper to take a look at the latest jobs section. Smartphones and tablets have made new openings accessible for job seekers no matter where you are.

Whether you are waiting in line at the post office or sitting on your lunch break, take a look at any current job postings that may be of interest to you. If not, you are missing out on the 1000s of jobs that aren’t just available to view but sometimes available to apply for via mobile.

Don’t miss out!

3.       Response time is faster

“82% of candidates expect to hear back from a company after applying, but 29% never even get acknowledgement that their application was received”

However, social recruiting technology makes it possible for us to interact with candidates upon application completion and vice versa.

This change allows us to enable email, SMS, and instant messaging alerts to speed up the recruiting process. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any queries.

4.       There is more to go on than a CV

Your two -page summary of your talents, accomplishments and experience is still a valuable recruiting tool however social recruiting has made it a lot easier to find out much more about you.

Finally, having an up-to-date professional social network, for example your LinkedIn profile, allows you to demonstrate your virtual portfolio that can highlight your real-world skills, examples of your work, and help establish a more well-rounded view of you as a professional.
