Beyond the obvious such as Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter, Kenexa offers sourcing strategies, candidate relationship management and consulting services that help attract, connect and recruit with talent like never before.

Included in Kenexa Social Solutions is a candidate relationship management tool that focuses on social recruiting and building passive candidate relationships. Using its robust API, Kenexa offers social career centers to empower candidates to interact with their social networks as they apply for jobs. Social consulting and management is included to provide the clients baseline for true social strategies and candidate attraction. Kenexa will continue to deliver on the promise of a social candidate and recruiter experience through its broad set and ever-expanding list of social features within its award-winning global talent acquisition solution, Kenexa 2x BrassRing™, including posting and sharing jobs across the most prominent social networks.
