Recruiting Innovation Revisited Day 8 – Richard Long talks Social Recruiting and Mobile

So we’ve reached the penultimate day of the Recruiting Innovation Revisited series. Back at the beginning of 2010 Richard Long wrote a guest blog post about his subsequently award winning social recruiting strategy at Deloitte New Zealand. It was great to be able to catch up to face to face with Richard in San Diego in March this year on the second last day of my month long trip.

In the interview Richard talks about his experiences of using Social Recruiting during his time as Head of Talent Acquisiton for Deloitte New Zealand and how they embraced Facebook to drive considerable improvement in their campus recruiting via live video engagement.We also discuss the vital importance of mobile in any social media recruitment activity

  1. I don’t think that you can say that there are much innovations in recruiting with social media – its more like a different medium for sending your message, but will some different rules that apply – for example more informal tone and more personal environment – you are actually contacting a person who has shared with you a part of his life.
