What Recruiters Do in a Slow Economy?

Since the beginning of year over 500,000 working Americans have lost their jobs. In a slowing economy when recruiters aren't busy recruiting, they spend time building their pipeline of talent.

The blog at Research Secrets share this list of resources that recruiters are using to seek out new talent:

Social Networking Websites
-Create groups on social networking sites like Facebook and Linkedin.

Blogs
-Recruiters read blogs in their industry or start their own blogs.

If you are getting ready to graduate and will be job hunting, knowing what recruiters are up to is one way to get a leg up in the job search. If you know recruiters are trolling blogs and social networking sites, it would suit you to start connecting there as well.
