Many companies today use recruitment software, while many job seekers use social media, so doesn’t it make sense to supplement one with the other?
Every employer wants to find the perfect candidate on the first try, but because there are so many talented job seekers out there, it’s tough to rely on just one source and expect to reach that end result. Therefore, companies that are already using recruitment software to target potential candidates can do the same through social networking sites.
