Social Recruiting Keynote Speaker
Shahid Wazed helps organizations build and sustain a magnetic employer brand on social media. His strength lies in developing social recruiting strategy and executing it with precision. He helped the City of Edmonton win a Standard of Excellence Award by the New Media Institute in New York for their “City of Edmonton Jobs” page on Facebook.
His innovative approach to recruiting using social media has led the City of Edmonton to become the first employer in Canada to host weekly “Ask A Recruiter” sessions on Facebook, offer job search specific webinars, and provide prospective candidates an opportunity to win a one-on-one coaching session with recruiters every month through Facebook.
Shahid developed a “3 Step Social Recruiting” model as part of his Master of E-Commerce (MEC) degree at Dalhousie University that can be applied to any social media platform to see an ROI in just 6 months! He applied this very model to create “City of Edmonton Jobs” page on Facebook, which attracted 25,100 targeted job applicants in just 9 months. As for Linkedin recruiting, Shahid generates three high quality candidates within 48 hours for his hard-to-fill roles. Shahid combines his recruitment experience gained from working at Canada’s Top 100 employers such as Shell Canada and Nexen Inc. with his marketing experience gained from completing his MEC degree to create these results.
Shahid loves sharing his expertise through public speaking. His past keynote addresses include Linkedin’s Connectin Conference in Toronto, ASAC (Administrative Sciences Association of Canada) Conference in Calgary, and Social Recruiting Strategies Conference in Chicago. His most popular keynote topics include “Building & Sustaining a Magnetic Employer Brand on Social Media“, “Getting an ROI from Facebook Recruiting in Just 6 Months“, and “Linkedin Recruiting Beyond Linkedin Recruiter Tool“.
