    The Illinois Search and Staffing Association presents:

    A “Social Recruiting” Webinar

    When: August 20th, at 12:00 noon (CST)

    Where: At Your Desk

    Speaker: David Searns, CEO - Haley Marketing

    Cost: Free to ISSA Members

    Register for this webinar and learn how to attract active AND passive job seekers without the high cost of job posts.

    • How well do you use social media for recruiting?
    • Are you targeting the right people?
    • Are you getting passive job seekers to your website?
    • Are you effectively “stealing” qualified candidates from your competition?
    You can do all this…and more with social media!
    With unemployment near record lows, you won’t fill your job openings by spending more on job posts. You need passive candidates, and you’ll find them on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram and other social sites.

    But you can’t just post your jobs on social media and expect results. You need a better strategy, and in this session, David Searns, CEO of Haley Marketing, will show you their best practices…and a few tricks of the trade…to attract qualified candidates to your jobs from social media.

    David Searns is CEO of Haley Marketing, a content, digital marketing and web design firm that works with more than 1,200 staffing and search firms throughout the world.

    For the past 22 years, David and his team have helped staffing firms to stand out from the competition, improve recruiting response, increase sales productivity, and stay top-of-mind with clients and candidates.

    Haley Marketing offers website design, blogging and social media, email & direct mail marketing, search engine marketing, reputation management, strategy development and creative services.

    Prior to forming Haley Marketing, David was Director of Marketing for a Western New York temporary staffing and direct placement service.  He holds an MBA from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and a Bachelor's in Management Information Systems from Clarkson University.
