4 Years Later – Social Media and Web Tech in Recruitment

Online technologies move fast in any industry and the recruitment sector is no different. 4 years ago I was studying towards Postgraduate Diploma and completed a detailed piece on how Social Media and Web technologies were impacting on the recruitment process. Now in 2017 I wanted to look back on how things have changed in this time, but also give you some insights into some future trends as well.

This post begins a series of blog posts I will write on the subject covering everything from why we should work with passive candidates we find online to the future of job boards to the ethics behind social media background checks. Please join the conversation and add your own comments, experience and thoughts on our LinkedIn, Twitter or Facebook.
