The days of post & pray are long gone. In the competition for the best talent, companies today cannot afford to publish meaningless job ads and wait for applications. They have to choose new ways and methods in recruiting to be successful in the long run. Social Recruiting proactively contacts potential candidates even before they are discovered by other companies. This gives you the opportunity to find highly qualified professionals who may not even be actively looking for a job. This personal contact builds trust and enables you to establish a positive relationship with the candidate.
As part of our Social Recruiting services, we work with you to create target group-specific search profiles in order to optimally identify suitable candidates. In addition to direct approaches via social networks, we also search specific CV databases for you. Furthermore, we can place supporting social media advertising for you within our social media recruiting, which draws attention to your open vacancies or your employer brand in general.

CASE STUDY: Active sourcing know-how for securing the trainee program of Amadeus Data Processing GmbH
As one of the 10 largest software companies in the world, with a total of 16,000 employees in over 190 countries, our client Amadeus Data Processing specializes in rethinking travel. This requires outstanding minds, which ARTS has tracked down as an HR expert.
The client had a goal of hiring 10 suitable graduates for its IT trainee program, but lacked the time for active sourcing in subject-specific groups.
ARTS drew attention to the trainee program in all relevant social media channels, contacted universities throughout Germany and internationally, and today provides long-term support to Amadeus Data Processing GmbH in the direct approach of students and graduates.
The customer's HR department can concentrate on its own core business and only gets to know the candidates that ARTS has already interviewed beforehand. Amadeus Data Processing has meanwhile been able to hire almost 30 trainees for several IT trainee programs with our help.
Frequently asked questions about social recruiting and active sourcing at a glance
What is Social Recruiting?
Social Recruiting is a modern method of recruiting in which companies actively search for qualified candidates and approach them proactively instead of just waiting for incoming applications. Various measures are used, such as targeted searches in databases, the use of social media platforms such as Xing and Linkedin, or the development of a company's own talent pool. The aim of active sourcing is to identify potential candidates at an early stage and to contact them in order to recruit them for vacancies or future positions.
The cost of Social Recruiting can vary depending on the specific needs, the scope of activities and the approach chosen. The use of specialized tools and technologies to support Social Recruiting may incur additional costs. This includes, for example, access to databases and candidate search and targeting software.
ARTS has access to all common systems for social recruiting.
How does Social Recruiting work on Xing and LinkedIn?
Personal profiles form the basis for social recruiting in social networks. In addition, there are licenses for companies and recruiters that make active sourcing much easier. ARTS has all the necessary licenses and tools to enable professional social recruiting. With the help of different keywords, we combine several terms with a high search probability in the keyword search. In addition, we use Boolean operators to increase the hit rate and find only the relevant target contacts.
When does Social Recruiting make sense?
Basically, Social Recruiting always makes sense. If there is a shortage of qualified specialists in your industry or in certain professional fields, active sourcing can help you to search for suitable candidates and win them for your company. In addition, social recruiting also makes sense if you have specific requirements for your employees that may not be met by traditional applications.
What is your experience with Social Recruiting?
We have had positive experiences with Social Recruiting, especially in areas with an increased shortage of skilled workers. By proactively sourcing and reaching out to potential candidate, companies can attract highly skilled talent that may not be actively looking for a job. The effectiveness of active sourcing depends on several factors and can vary by company and industry. An individual strategy that is adapted to your requirements is crucial.
