Many people today are using the snapchat social media platform for varied applications, one being to recruit. This may sound a bit odd because most of the companies using snapchat are after snapchat followers and advertising their products and services. As odd as this may sound, it is possible for companies to attract great candidates; hence build their brands by telling stories on their companies. If this is how you intend to use snapchat, you should bear the following tips in mind.
- Allow your candidates access to a live event hosted by the recruiting company
- Show the candidate behind the scenes of the employer as most of them are curious on what goes on behind the curtains.
- If you are advertising for a new position in your company, you may need to snap it or just its headlines and send it for your snapchat followers to see.
If you are recruiting through this social media platform, you should focus on making things fun and interesting rather than trying to be perfect.
