Talking about social media for agencies, Bill Boorman said:
“An increasing number of agencies are turning to social media for candidate sourcing and business development. It has taken some time, but the real challenge is finding the time to be social against the challenge of running a demanding desk. To some social seems a bit of a playground, i've even heard one industry leader saying recruiters shouldn't tweet. There's plenty of talk about social being solely about what people are having for lunch. Whilst some are raising these doubts, other agencies have been stealing a march, building up candidate networks and winning business through introduction.”
