The workplace of today bears little relationship to the workplace of 20, 15 oreven 10 years ago. Back then, the only things considered for potential candidates (outside of personal recommendations of course) were previous experience and presentability. If you looked good and your CV backed you up, you got the role.
Modern recruitment is more concerned with what we call corporate culture. In other words, if the social media marketing jobs (or any other kind of job for that matter) candidate is going to fit well with the company ethos.
A social media advertising service puts a brand or a person out to receptive audiences based on things like matching tags and specific points on the social media graph. In essence this is like people who all enjoy the same kind of music, or support the same sports team, banding together.
What happens is that the candidate or the brand finds points whereby he or she, dovetails with the employer, the audience and the consumer and the social media advertising service collects its pay cheque for having put the right people in touch with the right brands.
In the world of social media marketing jobs services the idea is the same. The right candidate for a company with a specific corporate culture and ethos is the candidate whose overall comportment within the workplace best embodies those values and personality traits.
To give two basic examples: a colourful, young company looking to develop an enthusiastic service for (for instance) delivering great children’s parties, needs bouncy enthusiastic individuals who are capable of energising their clients. While a very serious, entrenched investment portfolio management company is probably more likely to need quiet, capable types whose manner is reassuring and unobtrusive.
In both of these hypothetical cases the ideal candidate for the social media marketing jobs promoter is the one whose behaviours and interests closely match the personality of the intended employing company.
Social media can be used as a reasonable indicator of cultural aptitude for a role. In part, a business cultural fit may be gauged simply by looking at the circles, groups and network places a candidate is aligned with.
If a candidate wants to work in HR, for instance, and has off his or her own back already fostered a network of HR contacts and professionals through suitable social media channels, then he or she has pre-demonstrated a potential cultural fit for his or her role.
Additionally, social media may be used to groom prospective candidates by fostering relationships with them before roles open up in a business, or in a client’s business. If you already have social networking relationships with a number of candidates whose behaviour in conversation already betrays a cultural fit either with your business or with the business of clients, then it is even possible to create roles specifically to fit them in. After all in a world where business is more team oriented than ever, finding valuable players is almost more important than advertising specific roles.
