Google Plus for Recruiters

Some months a ago, when Google Plus was new and exciting. I ran a webinar on how it can be used by recruiters and a fantastic way to source candidates. I’m currently working on a new webinar to talk about how Google Plus has changed and developed and so in advance of that I’m reposting my original webinar and accompanying notes.
If you’d like me to notify you about future webinars please contact me and I’ll be delighted to add you to my mailing list.

Google Plus is Googles brand new social platform. It has been described as the recruiter friendly Facebook. Even though it is only a few weeks old it has already got tens of millions of profiles. From a recruitment point of view this is massively exciting as these tens of millions of profiles are all up to date and reasonably searchable. Google + is a mixture of ideas from Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter combined with some new stuff from Google. In this webinar I’m talking about what it is and how to search it. I also mention the new Google Plus One button which I have now put in the menu bar of this site. If you like this video, or any of the content on this web page, please click the button above and tell your circles.

As an added bonus I made a very short tutorial on how to add your LinkedIn connections into Google+.

    Passive candidates don’t care about your job potisng. If they’re good, recruiters are already inundating them with opportunities. And if anything, they’re not interested in another job they want a career. More importantly, in an uncertain economy, they want to have faith in the possibility that a prospective employer can provide the career they’ve been imagining. How do you give them that? Through employer stories.
