Social Media is a powerful tool, if you use it in the right way. I must admit, when plarforms like Facebook and Twitter first came I only used it for private reasons. Posting pictures, updating my status about five times a day and sharing way to much personal information. It wasn’t until I learned more about this tool that I actually got ver interested in it.

Now a days, I am looking for an internship and the platform I use most for that is LinkedIn and Instagram. If you look at the right places you can find great opportunities. I cam across an article on Forbes today as well, which is my main reason for blogging about this specific topic. You can read the article yourself but here are som great reasons why social media is a crucial recruiting tool:

 

4 Reasons Social Media Is A Critical Recruiting Tool

1. It’s the best way to reach job seekers.

2. It’s part of a cultural shift.

3. Transparency goes both ways.

4. It’s not the “good-old-boy” network anymore.

Are you using you social media platforms in the right way?
