Cost benefits of recruiting baby boomers
Recruiter.com

3 ways social networking is impacting the freelance economy
Forbes
Social networking is transforming many aspects of society and the labor force is no exception. Most people know about prospective or current employers checking their social feeds for “negative” behavior, but there is a more important impact of social networks occurring in the fastest growing segment of the labor force: the freelance economy. As businesses continue to look to freelancers to build an on-demand workforce, social networking will play an important role in three key ways– building incentive alignment for a more productive work arrangement, encouraging the increase in human capital for freelancers, and further driving the growth of the freelance economy. These trends will only gather speed over the coming years as freelancers continue to redefine how work gets done.

Monster launches Twitter Cards, branded recruitment ads
Talking New Media
Monster has launched a couple of new products that involve social media and are, on the surface, rather obvious attempts to deal with new trends in recruitment practices. Monster Twitter Cards, the company announced, “moves beyond the limitations of a standard Tweet to boost an employer’s integrated social recruiting strategy by automatically tweeting jobs throughout the day to a company’s or recruiter’s Twitter feed.” As more and more companies decided not to spend money on recruitment media outlets (newspapers have lost the vast majority of their ads), they have turned to Twitter to inform potential employees of job openings. The use of Twitter and other social media has the added advantage of having their recruitment messages spread through the same social media outlet. Monster obviously sees this same trend and wants to use it help retain its client base.
