Social Media in Recruitment Success Stories
Having attended the conference in July 2009, Jonathan Hart-Smith, Managing Director of CK Clinical, gained a great deal of insight into the impact social media can have on recruitment and is looking forward to sharing his experiences at the conference. You can get a heads up as to what Jonathan will be covering at the conference by watching this Youtube video:
Mike Taylor, conference organiser, is particularly excited that delegates from the first conference will be sharing the Social Media Strategies they have implemented since attending in July 2009.“I have never heard of delegates from a previous event coming back as speakers for the next event and sharing their success” commented Taylor. “They have a unique story to tell and both have seen their businesses grow as a result of using social media.”
“If you are a Recruiter and you are unsure about how you should be using Social Media in Recruitment then the Conference offers an ideal opportunity for you to learn from others who are already embracing social media as part of their online recruitment strategy” continued Taylor.
