Social media is not a new concept to many; it is what is in vogue now, the ‘in thing’. People find it even more comfortable to send you a Facebook invite, follow you on twitter or ask for your BB pin than ask for your mobile number these days. You know what I mean?

For every trend in the society today, one can induce some applicability to the job search process. Remember, I said in my earlier post here that From a recruiter’s point of view, any job seeker that has a mind to win in the talent war must take his/her job search seriously because job searching is a job in itself!.

SocialRecruiting is a growing trend in human resources today. In simple terms, SocialRecruiting is the effective use of Social Media & Social Networks by employers to attract, source, engage with and hire candidates. It is a relatively new concept which HR professionals in most parts of the world are using to support their recruitment efforts.

The above is an excerpt from my post on Jobberman.com Blog titled “Hello…” – Using Social Media To Get Your Dream Job which was published today. Kindly read it here and drop your comments. Cheers :-)
