Picture this: Your SEC Reporting Manager, Sr. Financial Planner, or J2EE Developer has just resigned in the middle of a huge project. One of your most valued departments now has a gaping hole. It’s an understatement to say that the open position needs to be filled ASAP.
Admit it. You balk, p-shh, and eye-roll at the mere mention of social media, especially when told it can help your career. For those of you in the accounting, finance, or IT professions, you probably think Facebook is for complaining; Twitter is for college kids; and Insta-what? Yeah, that’s useless, too. Right? Wrong.
A recruiting trend we’ve seen this year is incorporating social media into your candidate searching process. This isn’t news if you’ve been paying attention. In fact, according to a new survey released by Software Advice, social media is ranked third as a source of job candidates by volume, second in delivering the best quality candidates, and when asked, almost half of the participating recruiters said they plan to invest more in social media for recruiting purposes.
It’s more important than ever to hire the best people for your organization, but finding and attracting top accounting, finance, and IT professionals to fit within your company culture is a challenge.
Online networking is essential for today’s accounting and finance job seekers to be successful in your search. No matter where you are on your career path, networking is a vital part of securing the perfect position.
Hiring managers recognize social media offers a great pool of talented candidates. In the past few years, LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter have changed the way companies of all sizes find and source talent. The relationship with candidates is now more conversational and transparent.
If you’ve been on the hunt for a job for a while and can’t find one, you could be looking in the wrong place. Often, people look for jobs online, but most vacancies aren’t published. Plus the jobs that are advertised are typically harder to get. Why? Because people are throwing their resumes at hiring managers and not making real connections with people.
Technology’s role is growing in the job search. Hiring managers not only review your resume, they also Google you and scope you out on social media. Just like you check to see if a company is on Facebook or Twitter, they check the same.
Why? Because with social media, they can get a fuller picture of the person behind the resume.
