For financial services companies, the ‘Path to success involves finding those bright, innovative minds’. But with unemployment rates in the 2% range, where are you going to find those creative, innovative, talented minds? They aren’t sitting home waiting for a call. The best quality candidates are already working. An ongoing social sourcing and recruiting strategy will help find them and then entice them to join your team.
When it comes to social recruiting, your jobs are not your best content. Of course you should polish all your job listings to be dynamic and reflect your employer brand and employer value proposition, but the job listing itself is just a commodity.

Those views turned into click throughs and recruiting organizations were able to leverage all theypeople they worked so hard to engage with on social media and turn them into applicants.
