Social Media Graduate Recruitment Awards finalists announced

 

The finalists in the general awards categories for the 2015 Social Media Graduate Recruitment Awards have been announced, ahead of the conference and award ceremony that take place in January.

The general awards categories sit alongside a set of sector categories, which, as Ri5 reported, were announced last month.

The 2015 awards, which will be the fourth time in the event’s history, will take place on 22 January. The finalists were chosen based on student perceptions of excellence in the use of social media for recruitment, as well as the votes of a judging panel of industry experts.

Mike Roberts, event director for the awards, said: “It has been fascinating to see the calibre of this year’s entries. The fact that several organisations are now making multiple entries into several of the categories is a strong indicator as to how some companies have clearly embraced social media and are thriving in their use of it.”

Is it just me who finds it surprising that for an awards ceremony committed to social media, the last tweet was in Jan 2013?
