            WHAT ABOUT SOCIAL MEDIA STRATEGY?


            LinkedIn and social media have changed the recruiting landscape and there is social recruiting everywhere but is putting out 500 posts a day alone enough of a guarantee of the quality of candidates and success of recruiters? Many are doing the same thing and you need to differentiate to win talent! At its core, social recruiting is about building relationships with people
            long before they become applicants for a position at your company. The goal is to use your personal connections to match the right talent to the right role. Social recruiting is no longer a desired strategy or something to aspire to. It’s now a
            must-have component of any talent acquisition plan.
            Learn about the most important IT hiring social networks and how to source using them. Yes, you need a social media strategy as a recruiter just as much as clients need to see an EVP (Employer Value Proposition) and strong branding to enhance the process.
            However, if your requirements are faulty, your funnel and processes are not properly set and your communication mechanisms are not in place, you will fail. And maybe hopefully learn a thing or two.
            Can sourcers and recruiters really understand IT CVs with all the platforms, frameworks,technologies and requirements of hiring managers and clients? This customized course will give sourcers and recruiters an edge over the competition.

                    Preview of the IT Recruitment for HR Agencies & HR People. Watch an excerpt from Ubong Ekpo’s custom training.

                    I listened to the HR of a Global company recently at a presentation say: “The war for talent is over and the talent has won”. Social media and all available channels are exploding with HR hiring initiatives but how effective are the actual hiring processes behind those. Slow hiring managers and lack of long-term thinking and relationships has created problems for candidates and companies alike.
                    When HR understands how to collect consistent, more objective information across candidates, they’re in a much better position to evaluate candidates based on their merits and true culture fit at the company.
                    The workplace and its demands have changed with the impact of IT and evolution of the Knowledge worker. People are more mobile and flexible than ever with leaders and managers having their mindsets and abilities constantly challenged in attracting, positioning,developing and unleashing the very best in their organizations. Both internal HR groups and outsourced HR companies are grappling with wave after wave of change and a lack of proven strategies and processes to successfully attract,position,develop and retain organizational talent.
                    A good hiring strategy has these four tenets embedded in its design,is adaptable ,culture-conscious and data-driven.
                    Nothing an accelerate the growth of your business faster than hiring the right person. Similarly nothing will derail it faster than bringing in the wrong person.
                    To succeed you must get really good at hiring which means having a proven system.
                    This course teaches leaders,managers and HR professionals how to integrate key elements into IT hiring for results with small or large teams. It’s ‘REAL’ IT Recruiting that will help you master requirements, understand IT roles and optimize your funnel as Hiring Managers or Recruiters
