'...maximising the use of social media platforms to harness the creation of internal knowledge sharing and social capital is the bigger picture'; our CEO Mark Braund discusses social media in HR in his latest Huffington Post blog: http://huff.to/1h1H3HR
In a recent article I discussed how with 75% of companies either using or planning to use social media sites for recruiting, sites like Linkedin, Twitter, Facebook and Google+ are becoming increasingly important in job searching.

Story
Tagline
Marketing Executive at recruitment technology and CRM innovators, Colleague Software. I share top recruiting articles, videos, white papers, tips and tools.
Introduction
Hello, I'm Louis Welcomme. I work as a Marketing and PR Executive at Colleague Software - a recruitment software provider based in the UK.

I run the Colleague Recruitment Blog - building and promoting interesting and informed content to recruitment consultants (we welcome guest articles). I also manage Colleague's social media channels - including my personal favourite, Twitter @ColleagueRS - (please feel free to follow).

My background is not in recruitment (I graduated in 2009 with a History and Politics Degree), however since joining Colleague in 2011 I have found the recruitment industry to be an interesting and dynamic sector to be working in - especially in a time of exciting change and innovation.

I try to genuinely involve myself with the recruitment community, attending as many UK events as possible, (you may see me often recording the talks for YouTube) and taking part in and listening to discussions over the future of recruitment agency strategy and technology, online and offline - with a special interest in social recruiting.

I have a personal interest in history, politics, good food and drink, comedy, as well as classic rock music and enjoy living in the fine city of Norwich!

I don't manage any sales within Colleague Software - I tend to see my role in terms of simply raising awareness of Colleague so recruiters have greater choice when reviewing or adopting new recruitment software for their business.

If you are looking for recruitment software I would recommend you speak to my colleagues on 01603 735935 or sales@colleague.eu to see if our recruitment software would be suitable for your agency. You can also head to http://www.colleague.eu to get more of an overview of our software.
