Case Studies Social Media Recruitment

LinkedIn Case Study

Electrical Engineer in Munich on Linkedin

Conversions on LinkedIn can be expensive because this social network often has a very specialised and high-quality target group. LinkedIn users are usually well educated and mostly hold high-ranking positions in companies. The demand for these target groups is high, which leads to higher costs per conversion.

For example, if you are looking for electrical engineers (m/f/d) in Munich, it is advisable to advertise this job on LinkedIn. With a budget of €700 and a duration of 30 days, you can achieve about 19,000 impressions and an estimated 60 clicks on your website with ARTS specifically for this target group.

Meta Case Study

Blue collar jobs on META platforms

The Meta Group includes Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp, among others. Meta offers employers an effective way to reach less highly to low-skilled candidates for job openings through online advertising. As a company, you can place job ads on Facebook and Instagram to reach potential candidates directly on the platforms. These ads can be specifically targeted to certain audiences based on factors such as location, interests and education level. However, Meta's predominantly private focus brings with it more cost-effective advertising options compared to LinkedIn, for example.

For a 30-day job ad on Facebook and Instagram, we recommend a budget of €500 for optimal results. For a blue collar job in Dresden, Saxony, you can expect a reach of up to 10,000 users and up to 140 link clicks per day.

Frequently asked questions about social media recruitment

What is Social Media Recruitment?

In social media recruitment, social media are used as an effective tool for recruiting. The advantage of social networks is on the one hand their large reach, but above all the possibility of targeting very specific candidate target groups. Another advantage over traditional online job boards is the ability to address passively searching candidates.

Social media recruiting on platforms such as LinkedIn, Xing, Facebook, Instagram and TikTok is divided into 2 areas. On the one hand, semi- or fully-automated online advertisements can be placed to spread job vacancies or messages of one's own employer brand. On the other hand, potentially suitable candidates can be addressed directly by recruiters within social networks.

ARTS offers services and individual solutions for its clients in both areas of social media recruiting in order to create an effective candidate journey.

How can I recruit on social media?

ARTS offers very individual solutions for every single client in social media recruiting. 

We are happy to support you right from the start in setting up corporate channels, creating content for you and managing your social media channels. We are also happy to assist you in selecting the right channels for you.

We can also place individual job offers for you on social networks using online advertisements. The advantage compared to classic advertisements in online job boards is that even passively searching candidates can be approached and convinced to apply.

Another tool in social media recruiting is so-called social recruiting. Here, our recruiters contact suitable talents for you directly in the networks and applicant databases. We take care of the entire process for you, from initial contact and applicant management to rejection management and the interview process. Our experts will be happy to give you hiring recommendations.

From a strategic point of view, it makes sense to bundle all these activities within the framework of a social media strategy for your employer brand. The first step should be to define a so-called Employer Value Proposition for your company, in order to align all subsequent activities and campaigns. As a 360° HR agency, we are happy to develop this together with you.

How does social media recruitment work?

Social media recruitment describes ways of recruiting suitable candidates for one's own company via social networks. The advantages are the great scattering power of e.g. social media ads, but also the very detailed targeting possibilities that social media channels offer in order to precisely address passive searchers.

Social media recruiting starts with setting up social company profiles and using them regularly to communicate with employees and applicants. In addition to free communication measures, the networks offer different advertising formats to spread job advertisements and employer branding messages, for example.

The next step is to use social recruiting to target suitable candidates and draw their attention to vacancies within the company. For this, knowledge of Boelian operators and search algorithms is helpful in order to quickly and effortlessly track down qualified profiles. ARTS can provide your HR staff with comprehensive training in this area through our Active Sourcing training course.

What is the best social media platform for my recruiting?

It is not easy to name the one best social media platform for your recruitment. Many influencing factors determine the channel selection in social media. The most important criterion is the applicant target group for your company. Which occupational groups are you looking for? What age structure should applicants have? What interests does your target applicant group have? ...

LinkedIn has become the leading professional network worldwide. Here we can address and reach specialists and executives for you in German-speaking countries, but also internationally. LinkedIn, on the other hand, is less suitable for the search for blue collar workers.

Xing, the German equivalent of LinkedIn, offers recruitment opportunities, especially through social recruiting. We rarely recommend placing online advertisements on Xing, as the costs per application are often higher than on other portals.

Facebook offers good value for money for online ads, but younger applicant target groups in particular are now less frequently represented here.

Instagram is also getting older in its age structure. In contrast to Facebook, however, more and more professional and private networks are mixing here, which makes ad placement and also direct approaches for certain applicant target groups very interesting.

On TikTok, Generation Z can be found for the most part. They use the network both privately and professionally, which makes it very appealing for recruiting young professionals.

Depending on the applicant target group, we will gladly recommend the appropriate mix of social channels and measures or take over the campaign planning and implementation for you. Get in touch with us!
