The proliferation of Facebook has also advanced the reach we have as recruiters. We can staff roles halfway across the country from our offices in Chicago. The landscape of recruiting has expanded nationally — and Facebook, along with the progression of technology, provides a platform to connect with people all over the country. Additionally, we’re able to gain better insight on trends and developments, not to mention candidates, on a national level.
From an internal perspective, Facebook has evolved the social dynamics in the office. We have always been proud of the close relationships we build as a team, and through Facebook, the rapport employees have with each other has furthered. We strongly believe in success through building a close-knit team and Facebook has proven to be a great way for co-workers to become friends, interact with and get to know each other outside of work.
As reports swirl around Facebook’s upcoming IPO
, it’s clear how its impact on social networking is priceless.
