Organizations of every size may reap the rewards in identifying, attracting, and retaining top talent with an active social media program. This can help attract passive candidates and those in highly specialized and technical fields. Companies need to understand each channel and its unique benefits and features and be able to manage the related risks.

The substantial potential pitfalls from social media use, however, should not dissuade an organization from using these media for recruiting. With appropriate awareness of the risk factors involved, active policy establishment and well-considered procedures and tools for training on and managing social media use can reap rich rewards.

In viewing, participants will:

  • Get an overview of recent legal rulings relating to recruiting and social media
  • Learn how to work across silos to avoid legal pitfalls
  • Hear how a practitioner in a tightly regulated industry uses social media to recruit
  • Learn how campus recruiting and job seekers under 30 use social media in their job hunt
