2023 Talent acquisition trends: The impact of social media on recruiting
As the talent acquisition world continues to evolve and become more digital, global talent acquisition partner company Cielo is planning for growth in 2023. With a focus on innovation and technology, Cielo intends to streamline the recruitment process to make it more efficient for both companies and candidates.
Luke Parry, Director of Consulting EMEA and APAC at Cielo, offered his insights on the key social media trends that HR professionals should be aware of in 2023. He believes that Facebook will continue to be popular among younger generations who value privacy and prefer group conversations. Meanwhile, augmented reality on platforms like Instagram is expected to gain even more traction.
Personal branding will also be a critical aspect of social media in 2023, according to Parry. This gives candidates a platform to showcase their skills, experiences, and achievements in a visually appealing and accessible way. He believes that social media is a crucial tool for creating a powerful personal brand and connecting with passive candidates. Parry notes that social media is becoming one of the fastest growing methods of communication with candidates, and should therefore be a central part of any talent acquisition strategy. To make the most of these trends, Parry suggests starting with clear goals and objectives, consistency in building a narrative, and tailoring your approach to different demographics.
