Informative Social Recruiting Session Launched for Healthcare HR Professionals

It’s a new year, and the slow trickle of available healthcare jobs is starting to look like a little more like a stream. However, some positions continue to be easier to hire for than others. International recruitment marketing agency CKR Interactive and talent management solution leader Taleo have partnered up to provide healthcare recruitment professionals with valuable insight on how to effectively use social media to find candidates for these hard-to-fill positions. Over the past several years, social media has entrenched itself as the go-to tool of choice for employees seeking savvy candidates, and for candidates seeking more immediate connections with potential employers.

The free, one-hour webcast, titled “Hard to Fill Positions for 2012 and Why Social Media is Imperative,” will air at 9:00am PST on March 15, 2012. During the discussion, Taleo’s Regional Sales Director, Jennifer Gosizk, and CKR Interactive’s Vice President, Kasey Sixt, will present the results of recent research on:

• The impact of healthcare reform on top hospital positions
• The latest hospital vacancy rates
• Future trends

This informative session will also discuss how to use this data for recruiting talent through social media tools and resources. Topics covered will include:

• What exactly do we mean by “Social?”
• What is a “Portal,” and how can it be used effectively?
• How can you create better interaction between your current website and available social media tools?
• How can you make your social media recruiting more personal and convincing?

Participants will walk away with an understanding of how to best utilize social media to attract the right candidates for the right jobs.
