Here is a very useful post by Hung Lee on RecruitingBlogs about some Apps which offer potential for recruitment.
I am still in love with FourSquare as the concept is so simple and its potential for sourcing and employer branding is still not recognized by most companies (at least in Germany). Is there anyone who could share his experience at this week’s CeBIT? If there is a place where FourSquare and other social Apps should be used (not only) for recruiting, this is it.
The future challenge for any recruiter will be to keep pace with the multitude of Apps out there and to be ahead of the game (and to purposely choose the right ones). Having said that, the usage of Apps for recruiting could become a good example for crowdsourcing. Why not let employees administer these tools as they are using them anyway?
