As we approach next week's #NPRTwitterChat event (Thursday 1/31, 5-6pm EST), our friends at #TalentNet will be hosting the voices behind the @NPRjobs and @JoinTheFlock Twitter accounts to share their experiences managing and building social recruiting platforms on Twitter. The event will be Tuesday 1/29 from 7-8pm EST and you can listen to the live broadcast at TalentNet Live's BlogTalk Radio Page, and/or follow along on Twitter using the #TalentNet hashtag. The one hour event will be hosted by TalentNet founder, Craig Fisher (@Fishdogs), and include Lars Schmidt (@ThisIsLars) from NPR and Anitra Collins (@anitra10) from Twitter. We'll provide the background on #NPRTwitterChat, and share insights on building and managing a social recruiting platform on Twitter during conversation in the following areas.
Q1. What advice do you have for employers looking to leverage Twitter as a recruiting channel? Any lessons learned?
Q2. What are the most common myths or misperceptions about using Twitter to find jobs or candidates?
Q3. How do Twitter chats like #NPRTwitterChat fit in? What's the best way to stand out on a Twitter chat?
