Recruitment via Online Forums!! The key lies in Strategizing and positioning yourself

Social Media recruiting via online groups and forums is the new trend. Being a cost effective method of recruiting, it helps companies to showcase their virtual domain presence and helps in higher brand retention component. Companies are thereby using this strategy to create online case study forums, wherein potential recruits are given an opportunity to give their best solution to a situation.

Based upon the type of solution provided, Companies take the recruitment activities to the next level. However some new entrants are left in the lurch as they are not able to express their views or opinions as many would already have given their solutions.

The best suggestion for people in this stance, which I can pass on is, Try being neutral. Don’t go “Information Overload” to impress the company. Never keep apprehensions that there are others experienced than you who are discussing. Remember the fact that in online forums, you create a distinction for yourself for the knowledge you provide. “The shorter the better” adage holds well here.

One key to success in Social media recruitment and getting yourself shortlisted is to follow the chain of discussions happening. After thoroughly analyzing the “Pros” and “Cons” of the discussions, express your viewpoints. This helps in creating a right rapport between yourself and the other potential employees.

Lastly Take care that the network, where you are discussing the thread is fully updated, which helps the recruiter to get your complete details easily.
