What is the Biggest Challenge in Using Social Media to Source Candidates?Comments Off

The recruiting blog results from the first weekly poll are in.

The question: What is the biggest challenge in using social media to source candidates?

The results:

  • Internal push back (45%)
  • Lack of time (29%)
  • Fear with loss of control (17%)
  • Don’t know how to use tools (9%)

I wasn’t surprised that internal push back topped the list. Kudos to those that have been able to influence stakeholders internally and sell the risk/reward balance. Here is a post on the corporate adoption of social media for recruiting and retention.

Vote for the new poll for this week (right hand column): How would you rate your organizations current approach and strategy for online recruitment?
