It may have escaped your attention last year,as you were busy shuffling CV responses from your job board adverts, that it was getting harder to find and engage with prospective candidates?
I know you haven't got time to think about building relationships with candidates and thinking more than one month ahead in your office. How many months of missing your targets will it take for to realise that the game is changing fast?
You know that thing called social media that you have been dismissing as a waste of time for you? Remember the conversations we had in 2011 - "Twitter is rubbish"; "Facebook is just for mates", "Google Plus - what the hell is Google Plus? "; "We are already on LinkedIn" - well, unless you start eating some social media humble pie, it will be your competitors hitting your targets, not you.
On behalf of social media, we - Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus and LinkedIn and our many friends would like to welcome you to the 2012 Recruitment Party of The Year - Social Recruiting.
There will be lots of Researching, Sourcing, Tracking, Engaging, Communicating, Informing, Learning, and of course, Recruiting.
As with all good parties you will be getting a goody bag to go home with in the shape of more new candidates, long lasting relationships and maybe a few more placements along the way.
Remember, it is a party so make sure you bring along a nice bottle social media profile or two, and start talking to people and networking like you know you want to.
Have a great party and make some great friends :-)
