Social recruiting is now the norm — 93% of recruiters use or plan to use social to support their recruiting efforts. But social is no longer enough on its own. The 2014 Jobvite Social Recruiting Survey delves into the various tools and practices recruiters utilize to target quality talent. Findings reveal that, much like marketers, recruiters showcase their employer brand and engage with candidates across many platforms.

This webcast will share the survey’s findings and how one company’s story supports various findings, how they have created and enhanced their social strategies to stay ahead in this highly-competitive talent market, and Marvin Smith’s predictions on what will come next.
