@clintonlord, we don’t do this ourselves, but I have spoken to a few groups about how they can do it. May add a client in a month or so to help them with social recruiting. Try these ideas:
1) Make sure you’re on LinkedIn. Join groups that your target candidates are in. That’s the fastest/easiest way to connect with them.
2) Make sure you’re on Twitter. The other fastest/easiest way to connect.
3) Do Google Blog Searches (go to Google, hit the More link, select Blogs). Do a search for the most important industry keywords that your target candidate would deal with (i.e. agile computing, lean manufacturing, cost reduction), and see who’s writing about those topics. If they’re writing about them frequently, that means they’re good at them. If they’re good at them, they may be a great fit for your clients.
