So why aren't more recruiters actively recruiting on Google+?

Recruiting on Google+, a beginner's guideAt the time of recording the following getting started guide, Google+ had twice as many active users as LinkedIn - and the added benefit that researching and contacting candidates on the social site is entirely free. Yet take-up by recruiters has been slow. So we invited Katrina Collier to give an introductory talk, helping you understand the basics of getting started on Google+ so that you can start to use it as a recruiting tool. The webinar recording includes insights into:
 

- Setting up your Google+ profile

- Organising your contacts in circles

- Targeting what you share to only be seen by specific contacts

- Searching for candidates on Google+ using both the Google+ search interface and using X-Ray searching

- Contacting candidates on Google+

- Discovering Google+ Communities (like LinkedIn Groups) and insights into the demographics of who is on Google+
