Starbucks is one of the most prolific users of social media. You’ll find out how the employer brand and sourcing teams partner to take advantage of the largest consumer fan base on Facebook and all their Twitter followers. Learn how the employment brand and consumer brands work together to attract and engage passive candidates. Find out the results of Starbucks sourcers and recruiters using widgets and a powerful CRM tool and finally, find out how the company decides where to spend recruitment advertising dollars, and how it measures results.

Terri Coligan and Gail Houston about Recruiting and Social Media

Earlier today Terri Coligan and Gail Houston presented us the INTUIT way of working the Social Media Madness.

My thoughts on online recruitment are close to what they have done the past period online. I like that 🙂
Though they are still in “beta” all the pilots they do start to bring them good revenue. Succes is there.
