Agree Jobpost would not do much with current social media environment. Strategic social media recruitment would increase. Thank you for sharing.

Paul,I totally agree with this besides that I feel that most recruiters do not put too much effort or give lots of consideration to online applications if these applicants where not referred to by someone (I am generally speaking). I've been seeking a job opportunity since approximately 2 months. I've applied and registered in plenty of Job Sites, Companies Websites, Recruiters but in vain although I am confident of my qualifications.

Besides that they rarely get back to you, it happens a lot that you apply for a job on the company website directly and the same job through a recruiter and you will be surprised that one finds your qualifications suiting the job posted, the other don't.

All the 3 points mentioned in the article are great but what's the purpose of having them there if they are not taken seriously and not monitered well besides that the job posting itself should be clear in addition to the requirements.

I would add one tip: There is nothing wrong with conducting preliminary interviews via Facetime or Skype. This will give the recruiter a good idea about the job seeker, reduce processing times and make shortlisting efficient, then final interviews could be done in Person.

I will say this in the best english I can (it is not my first language) trying to not sound rude. I think the best way to do that is stop talking about "generation x", "milenials", etc etc. People still remains the same in terms of needs but what changes is the way to satisfy that needs. If you see to the past, ask this question: are Steve Jobs or Bill Gates milenials or generation Y people?. The same things that we would have applied in the past to attrack, engage, work with people still remains. The problem is we did not apply that in the past and did not appy it in the present creates a higher impact today than in the past. When you analyze some companies that somebody think are "milenials complaint" you will find that all the environments are intended to create work alcoholics than in the past, while somebody could think that being workalcoholic is not a feature of a milenial people.
