Video Friday – Watch this Video then Pass it On

February 11th, 2011

I speak on Social Recruiting and Job Search Tech once or twice a month.

Yesterday, I spoke at a local members in transition group.  I told the group that even though there were a great deal of advantages to using social media and social networking to source candidates, the triangle still lagged behind other areas of the US.  One of the participants asked me how this was possible – after all, Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill has been singled out as one of the best connected metro areas in the country.

True, our tech is great, but that technology and comfort with social media hasn’t made extensive inroads in recruiting and HR.  There are a variety of reasons for this – from corporate policy, to adoption of what is still seen as relatively new technology, to training, to fear of the unknown.

This video was referred to me as part of the regular #hfchat on Twitter.  I suggest it is worth watching, not only for the information that it offers, but for the possibility it will change the way you think about your job search.

Watch it, and if you think it was worth your time, pass it on to someone else you think may benefit from it:

As it is the closing day of Social Media week – how has social media changed your job search?
