October 29th, I'll be running my fourth installment of the Social Media Headhunter series at Hireability.
This particular training will focus on the use of search engine optimization techniques for recruiters, including primers on what SEO is, how to find SEO candidates, and how to rank highly in search engines for terms relating to your industry.
68% of offline purchases now begin with online searches.
Over 70% of recruiters admit to using a search engine to check a candidate's background prior to an offer.
Search engines are an important part of the way we conduct our business. We check out salespeople calling us by checking their name in a search engine. We research vendors, and yes, we check out recruiters before we agree to send them a resume.
Learn how to dominate your niche both locally and nationally.
And if you'd like to see how it's done - do a search for "jim durbin" recruiter. Last time I checked, I was 18 pages deep on Google.
Also search, "hyperion recruiter," "java swing interview questions," "best st louis headhunter," and "list of st louis staffing agencies." Notice any sites popping up?
