Facebook is the largest Social Network and there are several unique ways to identify talent there.

Use LinkedIn to transform lives. LinkedIn advanced search tools allow you to find the right talent faster.

And the LinkedIn Recruiter platform lets you save talent so you always will have a shortlist at your fingertips.


Twitter is for many brands where they start to initiate conversations with potential talent. Use Twitter Search to identify active #hashtags. There are several high-quality tweet chats on relevant topics for Hotels. Engage in these chats and you will very fast be able to find quality and valuable talents.


Google is underutilized as a tool to identify talent. Take time to identify communities that add value to your Hotel. One great way to identify talent is through Google Hangouts.
