Whether you are new to recruitment, a recruitment business owner or in need of people for your start-up, recruiting can be overwhelming at times. Fortunately, the Facebook recruitment community is known for being open and generous. People readily share advice and tips and are happy to help anyone who is interested.
One of the best ways to get to know the recruitment community and expand your knowledge is to join Facebook groups. Here you can easily ask questions and see what issues people are focusing on. To help you get your start in recruiting I’ve put together a list of five Facebook groups you should join.
This is a great place to get help and advice on all things resourcing related. As the job market becomes tighter resourcing will play a larger role, so if you don’t yet know how to find and source candidates this group is a great place to start.
The Recruiters Online group is managed by a few people, including Michael Keleman. He’s famous for hosting the Recruiting Animal Show. The group doesn’t allow ads or job posting. It’s about sharing ideas, challenging each other, and finding ways to be a better recruiter.
Run by Jacob Sten Madsen, this group is devoted to finding new, different, and better ways of tackling recruitment problems. If you have a crazy idea that you aren’t sure of or want to challenge yourself, this is a great place to start.
An interesting group where most of the time, it encourages recruiters to share their favourite growth hacks. It also includes tips on how to hire, automation tools and general recruiter advice on relevant industry content.
Notice that on my “Recruitment Start Up & Support” community group, we really don’t like recruiter spam. It’s just an honest and open community of Recruiters on the same journey, sharing successes and challenges with one another.
Fight Spam is a great place to laugh at terrible recruiting emails while also getting ideas on how to communicate with candidates in ways that get positive responses.
