A Recruiter’s Dilemma: Should I Add a Smiley or Not?

Should you change how you communicate online based on who you communicate with? This is a guest post by Tahl Wilson. If you’d also like to guest post here on JobMob, follow these guest post guidelines. As a hi-tech recruiter, social media has opened up a totally new dimension as far as being able to reach out, find, and communicate with potential job seekers. Amazing networking platforms such as LinkedIn and Facebook however, with their convenience have created mass competition as every person actually has access to every person, and basically anyone and everyone can become a virtual headhunter. Now my intention is not to criticize those super savvy bloggers/twitter’ers/Facebookers. It’s amazing (and a fact) that people who have the personality and charisma to draw in thousands of people in with one quirky message/headline/blog, and thereby persuade them to do virtually anything, has become one of the most popular professions in the industry today and generates almost immediate revenue and results far beyond what traditional marketing ever did. The question remains, if I need candidates and I am competing with hundreds of other recruiters for the same pool of hi-tech professionals, what will make you want to answer me if you are only contemplating a move?
