Social Media for HR Professionals

@ Asia Pacific Institute of Digital Marketing - APIDM

Social media is a powerful tool to help HR professionals to reach their objectives. HR professionals can easily leverage social media to reach prospective candidates, upload job vacancies, filter candidates, and improve employer branding. It’s a great tool to build relationships and reach out to talented candidates who may not even be actively looking for a new position.
