In recent years it has become clear that for younger job candidates in particular, social media is becoming an increasingly important tool. More and more people are using sites such as Facebook and Twitter for professional networking and finding new positions within all industries, including the automotive industry.
According to new research by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development, nine out of ten businesses are also utilising social media to look for new employees. Employers who are in search of fresh talent can use social media to their advantage, attract a wider pool of potential employees and ensure that they are finding the best possible people to fill their vacancies for motor industry jobs of all kinds, as well as increasing interest in their business.
As you can tell from all this, it’s obvious that businesses who want to say relevant in this ever-changing and evolving industry need to take advantage of new platforms such as social media websites if they want to keep up and employ high quality candidates.
At John Gibson Associates we are always making sure to stay ahead of the latest developments in recruitment and we make use of social media sites such as Twitter to get the word out about our clients’ job vacancies. This is just one of the many ways we explore every avenue to bring employers the widest possible selection of high quality, skilled and talented candidates in all aspects of the automotive industry.
