Do you agree, does great sourcing take more than fancy tools? #recruitment   #HR   #socialrecruiting   #sourcing  
As any talented tradesman will tell you, it's not how many tools you have or even how great your kit is that matters but how you use them. Success comes from mastering the tools in your armoury.After all, finding people on the Internet is easy. But getting a response, in a candidate driven market like this, is not.And your job is so incredibly important because you are the door to your or your client’s company.The decisions you make matter.

Introduction

I'm a Social Recruiting Specialist: consulting, speaking, training and writing about the use of social media in recruitment, be it for hiring or job search. 

The social media explosion transformed the recruitment industry; I founded Winning Impression when I saw that there was little training or help around for companies who want to use social media to recruit time & cost-effectively, or for job seekers who want to use it to open job opportunities.

Companies learn how to incorporate recruiting on social media sites (LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and a range of smaller & niche sites) into their hiring strategy via a range of training workshops delivered monthly or on their site:

**Grab a copy of  the 55 page free eBook The Essential Guide To Recruiting on Twitter **

Job seekers are empowered to use social media in their job search via

Social Recruiting blogger:

My social recruiting articles can be seen on The Muse, Winning Impression, at Social HireJobsite, The Work4 Blog,  and Computer Weekly. I also volunteer as a Business Expert at Working Knowledge, bridging the gap between education and the workplace.


I have a soft spot for dogs, especially my Chocolate Labrador and Springer Spaniel, and an obsession for using Instagram!

Creating engaging podcasts has been on my list of things to do for ages but it was regularly demoted due to time constraints & work pressures. Bringing Viv into the frame was such a smart move that I wish I'd done it much earlier. She made the process painless and seamless. Together we recorded podcasts which sound superb, are interactive and are extremely useful. Viv understands why audio is crucial to your business and she is professional, thorough and prepared. She knows how to ensure you and your business shines, I can't recommend Viv & Audio Byte highly enough.
