If you’re a hiring manager or recruiting professional, what are your thoughts about using Facebook to recruit candidates?  Have you had any particularly interesting results, either positive or negative?  How does Facebook compare to other networking sites, such as LinkedIn?

A Search From All Sides

With each new search, there are multiple people involved in the process, each with their own perspective.  We thought it would be interesting to examine the various viewpoints of the folks involved in the search: the Recruiter, the Hiring Manager, the Human Resources representative, and the Candidate.  We’ll examine the full cycle of a search, starting with the Kickoff – the initiial stages of the process:

 

Recruiter

Looking forward to meeting the hiring manager to better understand they type of candidates who will be successful and to build a relationship with her. Getting her to meet with me was like pulling teeth—if she doesn’t want to meet it’s either because this search is not a priority or she’s got 6 other recruiters working on it.

Hiring Manager

I’m swamped—the last think I want to do is spend 45 minutes with a recruiter who is supposed to find me an Accountant so I won’t be constantly swamped.

Human Resources

I wish the Hiring Manager and Recruiter would stop going around me. We’ve got certain policies in place to save time and money in the recruiting process.

Recruiter

If I can’t speak with the hiring manager it’s a low probability that I will fill this position. I work on commission and I need to prioritize those searches where I have the best chance of making a successful placement.
