Facebook and Twitter now reaching job seekers /Global/Press-and-News/News/2010/Facebook%20and%20Twitter%20524x224.jpg Social networking has become part of our daily lives. It has also changed the way applicantslook for jobs and form impressions of prospective employers. The Americas division turned to existing partner Monster.com to tap into the potential of social recruiting. “Because it is a new frontier, there is no road map. Monster’s turnkey solution has allowed us to establish a presence on Facebook and Twitter, bringing jobs that we already post on Monster into our customized public profile – ASSA ABLOY Americas Jobs,” says Margaret Wirtes, director of strategic human resources initiatives at ASSA ABLOY Americas. “This has enabled us to extend our recruitment brand to potentially millions of active and passive job seekers ‘friending’ and ‘tweeting’ daily.” In addition, Wirtes says, it gives applicants who would not otherwise visit the company website the opportunity to learn more about ASSA ABLOY Americas: “Included in our profile are a variety of videos, links, photos and live news feeds in addition to the latest job postings.” Follow ASSA ABLOY Americas on www.facebook.com/assaabloyamericas and www.twitter.com/assaabloyameric.
