Topic: Best Practices using social media for recruiting (including legal part)


Description: Social media has gotten a bad rap recently. It’s making us depressed, shrinking our view of the world and causing us anxiety while blocking our sleep. But it can also be used for good: connecting people. From reconnecting with your long-lost best friend to finding a kidney donor to landing your dream job, social media has the power to connect. This presentation will cover some of the basics of the most popular channels, discussing how they can be used to help grow your own career, as well as recruit top talent to your organization.
