Beware the Pitfalls of International Social Media Recruiting

The Germany-USA Career Center uses all relevant social media networks - both in the U.S. and in German-speaking countries in Europe - to help its visitors and clients to accomplish their goals.

The German initiative to prevent HR and recruiters by law from looking up (prospective and current) employees on Facebook™ illustrates the differences between the U.S. and Germany in the use of social media as a recruiting tool.

Another significant difference: In Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, the social networking platform Xing™ plays an important role in business-to-business and career-related social networking. LinkedIn™? Not so much.

But don't worry if your comany is US-based and has never heard of Xing™. Where it is relevant to your recruiting or employer branding efforts, we've got you covered.

Through the Germany-USA Career Center, you can connect with great candidates right were they are!

My GUCC Experience

"Great insights to how the job outlook and system works in Germany. I appreciate [my Career Adviser's] help in understanding a once mysterious system over there.

[On a scale of 1-10] I would give it a 10, because of the patience that was shown toward me when I was confused, and the thoroughness of explanation.

On top of that, they did such quality work on my CV and cover letter. The service given can give you a "leg-up" in your career search."
