HireClix Hosts Free Social Recruiting Seminar and Networking Mixer for Recruiters in Greater San Diego »

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) January 23, 2012 HireClix will provide strategic insights and practical steps on how and why recruiting teams can use social media channels for recruiting in their first San Diego social recruiting seminar on Wed., Feb. 1 from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. The free breakfast seminar, “Maximizing LinkedIn and Facebook for Recruiting”, will be held at the Marriott Del Mar at 11966 El Camino Real in San Diego. The event is free and open to recruiting teams throughout San Diego County. Registration is required at http://www.hireclix.com/events.

“It’s time for recruiters to move beyond job boards and integrate social media into their recruitment campaigns,” said Neil Costa, CEO and founder of HireClix. “Because social media is still underutilized for recruiting, employers can quickly get started on social recruiting to implement innovative recruiting campaigns that will stand out from the competition and be attractive to hard-to-find candidates.”

Corporate recruiting teams, staffing firms and human resources professionals are invited to attend the free breakfast seminar presented by Costa. The in-depth seminar will focus on how companies can utilize Facebook and LinkedIn to build their employment brands, recruit passive and active candidates, and increase the quality of incoming candidates and hire yield. Costa will also demonstrate specific “how to’s” for building a Facebook recruiting fan page and targeting passive candidates with Facebook advertising. He will provide a tutorial on the advantages of LinkedIn’s lesser known products and outline effective techniques for negotiating a LinkedIn contracts.

The educational seminar will also include real-world examples and case studies demonstrating the effectiveness of Facebook and LinkedIn recruiting campaigns, including HireClix’s “athenahealth Campus Recruiting Food Truck Event” which won the Best College Recruiting Program of 2011 at The Recruiting Conference in November.

Costa has 15 years of experience in targeted digital advertising, search marketing and online recruitment advertising. He frequently speaks on topics regarding the innovative use of digital recruitment marketing to change the way organizations find and recruit talent, as well as the challenges and opportunities of today’s job market. Before founding HireClix, Neil worked at Monster.com where he managed a $20 million annual budget as part of an internal digital marketing agency responsible for implementing recruitment marketing and advertising campaigns.
