What is Social Recruiting?
It is an excellent concept which is helping both recruiters and candidates in the recruitment process. Hiring through these channels is a trend commonly seen these days. Getting candidate’s information from their social profiles, internet, and other online sources have always proved to be beneficial for the recruiters. In fact, many organisations have started using a social recruitment software to get detailed information about candidates.

Millennials use digital media every day to interact with friends and colleagues. Knowing about candidate’s behavioral pattern has become a pre-requisite for hiring a candidate.

A job score is also provided to the recruiter where candidates are ranked according to their job-seeking pattern.
