We recently had a chat with Bryan Chaney, who is the global social media strategy manager at the global re-insurance company Aon. We discussed the recruitment challenges they are facing and how social media is increasingly helping the company acquire the best talent.
Takeaways from the Aon social recruiting experience:
- Convey a consistent message through all your platforms (both internally and externally)

- Google+ is a great place for sourcing and contains very fresh profiles
- Aon use Facebook primarily for campus recruitment
- The company is testing out Pinterest and have listed all their recruiters on a specific board
- If you’re looking for a job, always apply for specific jobs at Aon, you can also join the career community and chat with recruiters and current employees.
