Over the past week, I’ve been reading about the impact of Facebook Graph Search on social recruiting. Parsing through my Google Alert that captures anything on social recruiting. Searching the annals of Boolean Black Belt. Thinking about how much I love TalentBin. Justifying spending so much time reading career posts on Levo League and The Daily Muse.
Why this reenergized excitement about all things social recruiting related? You may be thinking it’s because I’m a giant nerd- and I suppose partly it is! But more importantly- I decided to accept a offer from Lithium Technologies to do contract work with them: manage sourcing for several roles, as well as formulate and implement a social recruiting strategy basically from the ground up.
As I chatted about the potential work, I was sure to emphasize that I love my work with my other clients and I have no plans to give that up. My work with Lithium will be a perfect complement to my growing client base and will allow me to get back into a recruiting role, which I’ll admit I missed a bit since leaving LivingSocial.
This means all the hours I spent learning at LivingSocial are not in vain. So I’ll be back later, I have to continue quenching my thirst for social recruiting knowledge
