New Recruiting Toys

We seem to talk, read and write every day about something new happening in the world of recruiting and – lately – the conversations have concentrated around social networking, mobile apps and video.  Personally, I think these are fantastic tools and certainly the future of recruitment.

Social networking is an ongoing activity and must be focused on each day in order to reap results.  However, conducting searches and making calls/introductions to new candidates seems to be a topic that is not being focused on as much today as it was as little as one year ago.

Is the recent lack of more traditional recruitment talk due to it not being a “sexy” topic or whether recruiters are actually focusing their time more on these emerging tools other recruitment methodologies.

Have you found your sourcing has changed with these new tools?  Are you spending more time searching social media over the channels you were using not too long ago?  Have you revised your approach to candidates at all as a result of social media?

I look forward to your comments!
