WHO: My friend and colleague, Steven Rothberg
WHAT: Free Webinar: How to Use Facebook for Recruiting
WHEN: Thursday, August 14, 2008 from 2-3pm EDT/ 1-2pm CDT / 12-1pm MDT / 11am-12pm PDT

Facebook and MySpace are two of the most popular sites amongst U.S. college students and recent graduates and dwarf the traffic from any job board, including sites such as Monster, Careerbuilder, and HotJobs. Yet very few employers are using the social networking sites for recruiting and very few of those are using them well.

My friend and colleague, Steven Rothberg, regularly speaks at recruiting conferences and is quoted by national print and broadcast media about how employers can and should use social networking sites such as Facebook and MySpace to help them recruit college students and recent graduates. Steven is the President and Founder of, the leading job board for college students hunting for internships and recent grads looking for entry level jobs. If you haven’t been able to attend the conferences or want more information than what the media sound bites deliver, then join Steven for an interactive, humorous, free webinar on Thursday, August 14, 2008 from 2-3pm EDT/ 1-2pm CDT / 12-1pm MDT / 11am-12pm PDT.

During the “How to Use Facebook for Recruiting” webinar, Steven will discuss how employers can and should use these sites. He’ll examine the risks and potential rewards. And he’ll look create a best practices check list that will help all employers create or improve their web 2.0 recruiting strategies and tactics.

Space is limited so register today.

    By any chance will there be another date and time to see and listen to this webinar? Will it be taped for future viewing?

    I will be traveling that day and unable to use a laptop to view it.

    Teri — Perhaps there was some momentary problem between your computer and the GoToMeeting registration form but I just clicked on the link above and the form came right up. So please try that again. Should you still have difficulty then perhaps you’re on a network that blocks certain domains. If you can’t connect, then email, let her know you tried without success to register for 8/14/08 webinar, and provide her with the following information:

    * First Name:
    * Last Name:
    * Email Address:
    * Address:
    * City:
    * State/Province:
    * Zip/Postal Code:
    * Phone:
    * Organization:
    * Job Title:

    Alison — The software that we use does not yet have the ability to record and replay the webinars but a couple of suggestions:

    1. You can watch a similar televised presentation that I did for CTN: The Energy Network at It was recorded about nine months ago so some things have changed but most of the information is still valid.

    2. We do plan to host these free webinars on a regular basis but have not yet set the dates or topics for the second, third, etc. webinars. If we feel that a lot of people missed out on this because of conflicts such as your travels then we’ll schedule another Facebook webinar sooner rather than later. Other topics that we’re looking at include new media such as how to use targeted email campaigns and cell phone text messaging for recruiting.

    Would love to have another opportunity to catch this webinar. We missed it and will try the televised edition.
