The Best Facebook Groups For Recruiters

It used to be LinkedIn was the social network you used for your professional life and Facebook was the one for your personal life. Today, that distinction isn’t so clear.

In fact, LinkedIn groups are mostly dead these days while Facebook groups are thriving.

Here are 4 Facebook groups you need to be in if you work in recruiting.

1. Recruiters Online

Description: Members must be involved in Recruiting, Sourcing, Interviewing, Hiring, HR, Recruitment Marketing, Recruiting Social Media, Career Consulting or work for a company that does this stuff. This is NOT a place to advertise your company or post your jobs. 

Members: 11,384

Admins: Micheal Kelemen, The Recruiting Animal, Chaim Yuk, Jason Davis

Why you should join: The biggest recruiting group by membership, discussions are driven by Michael Kelemen and can be provocative but always thought-provoking. Members include a mix of recruiters, industry influencers, and vendors.
