    Thanks for writing this article. I am glad to see this form of relationship building is working for finding “real candidates”. What is your feedback on a site like notchup.com from a recruiters perspective.

    We this article gives me the confidence that professional relationship cultivation through social media technologies does have its place. See ya around on twitter or facebook!

    Katie was on a Social Media Panel in front of 241 colleagues for our Minnesota Recruiters event Friday. In response to a question of how much time is spent on Social Media, Katie replied with “constant partial attention.”

    Most everyone write that down.

    I had been trying to think of a phrase for some time and she nailed it in three words.

    Thanks again friend for sharing your thoughts. You, Josh Kahn and Erica Steffenson were awesome.

    Couldn’t agree more. I always encorage my Onboarding Gen Y clients to enable internet and social networking tools. They’re afraid of the produtivity loss, but are being too short sighted. Thanks for additional reasons why access is good!

    Great post. I have just recently started using social networks as a recruiting tool for our company and am encouraged to hear that they work and can truly function as an integral part of the recruiting process.

    Hello, the last 10 people I hired were through social networks. After a recent posting on a social network, 93 responses were received…93 qualified or near-qualified and viable responses. Now I have a candidate pool for today and for future hires since you can connect and stay linked. Another asset to the social networks are those fabulous “what are you working on” tags which has turned out to be a free instant marketing blast tool.

    Kelly — would love to hear more about which networks you used, what worked, what didn’t. Todd
