Sharing JobOnline Vacancies on Social Media December 13, 2012Posted by The Careers Group News in : graduate recruitment, jobs, recruitment , add a comment
Recently we posted about New Enhancements to JobOnline, The Careers Group’s Graduate Jobs Database. As well as improvements to the database and its webpages we have also enhanced the packages we offer to employers so that they can now advertise their vacancies on our social media platforms.
We began offering employers the chance to include social media posts as part of their JobOnline packages in the summer and in the last three months we’ve seen a rapid increase in demand for this service. If an employer places a long (over 25 word) advert they can opt, for a set price, to include a link on our main The Careers Group, University of London Facebook page and Twitter feed enabling them to reach a wide range of job seekers.
The success of this new service is possibly due to increased awareness among employers of the importance of reaching out to applicants through social media. Over 9,000 people use our Facebook page and our Twitter feed has just under 5,000 followers. The nature of social media also means that these vacancies are shared, retweeted and commented on, enabling them to reach an even wider audience.
Employers also like the service as it’s particularly simple to add a social media campaign to your JobOnline recruitment package. Ingrid Ross, Head of The Careers Group’s Communications and Vacancies team, suggested that the improvements to the booking system and providing more information to recruiters have enabled increased employers to benefit from the service.
If you”re an employer and would like to reach an additional 14,000 people by sharing your jobs on social media please see our services for recruiters.
