Facebook and HR issues: Using Facebook as a recruiting tool

Ernst & Young, a consulting company, is breaking new ground on Facebook!

They are attracting top recruits via a “Facebook Careers Page” — the first of its kind! True pioneers in the human resources arena.!

Rather than only using online job sites or job fairs, Ernst & Young has revolutionized the process.

They create a relationship and engage candidates months before they graduate.

On their Facebook Careers Page, the company lists its available positions and internships, as well as general information and news.

The result?

They have already generated more than 37,000+ fans, most of whom may very well be working for them one day.

Their efforts also promote the company’s brand and creates tremendous buzz among the brightest “up and comers” in the industry!

Not a bad way to go, eh?
