Staying up to date with changes in technology is one of the most important factors for successful automotive recruitment, particularly when searching for prospective employees in fields such as engineering, design, research and development. As social media has become such a vital part of so many people’s lives, it offers the perfect opportunity for recruiters and employers to attract and inform job candidates.

In today’s world, far more talented job seekers will be using social media than those who are not, so sites such as LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter can give you access to an extremely large pool of potential employees. With widespread smartphone use, most of us will be checking our social media while we’re on the go, which means you have the opportunity to reach skilled people around the clock. The internet is the first place most people will look when they are searching for a new job, and by clever use of social media, you can reach out to them directly.

Of course, in recruitment it’s not all about quantity, but quality; you want to make sure you can not only reach out to a large amount of people, but also that they are the right people. Social media allows you to inform people about what the job will involve, ensuring applicants are absolutely clear about the position and attracting people with the specific talents and qualifications you need. It also makes communication easy, allowing you to answer any questions candidates may have.
