Social Media Recruitment in the DACH Region
Xing, founded in 2003 as the Open Business Club and then renamed XING in 2006, is one of Europe’s leading social networking platforms. Currently, about 20 million people in the DACH region use Xing.
It is possible to set up a profile on Xing and run ads in minutes. However, it is important to remember that XING is at its core a social network.
XING is a social network
XING is a social business network that allows users to create personal and company profiles. It also allows them to join groups and participate in events. In addition, XING offers several advertising opportunities to help businesses connect with potential customers.
The company has a variety of mobile and desktop applications for its users to use. These include XING Stellenmarkt, XING Events and Xing for Outlook. The Company also provides technical support for its users.
While LinkedIn has a larger user base worldwide, Xing’s focus on the German market makes it an important business networking site for businesses with a European presence. As a result, the Company is well positioned for long-term success. The Company also has a strong balance sheet, with a high profit margin. In addition, the Company has been able to translate its popularity into revenue growth. Its revenue has doubled in the last few years. Its current annual revenues are around a quarter of a billion euros.
XING is a professional network
XING offers businesses and job seekers a range of services, including recruitment, branding, and networking opportunities. Founded in 2003, it has over 15 million members across the world. Unlike other social networks, XING focuses on business issues and careers.
Using a member search function, users can find potential contacts by entering names and keywords. They can also connect with people through existing connections or via the suggestions XING provides them. XING also offers a mobile app that allows members to access their profiles on the go.
XING also offers several advertising formats, such as Sponsored Posts and Ads, that are aimed at specific audiences. These can be targeted by occupation, career level, industry, and other business-related attributes. Premium memberships are available, which allow firms to promote their profile and gain new customers. Firms can also set up branded enterprise-level communities on XING, which boost their branding and strengthen their organization’s capacity to reach out to prospects.
XING is a business network
XING is an online business network that connects professionals in more than 16 languages. Its platform includes a job search engine, an employer brand management system, and other tools for finding jobs and networking. XING also offers a range of marketing services, including portal-based event advertising and affiliate marketing.
The company is headquartered in Hamburg, Germany, and has more than 8 million members worldwide. Its mission is to “make working life better” and it is driven by a “mentor” brand personality. Its customers include individuals, headhunters and recruiters, and companies.
XING is similar to LinkedIn, but it is more targeted towards German speaking audiences in the DACH region (Germany, Austria, and Switzerland). Its reach is much smaller than that of its American competitor. Unlike LinkedIn, which promotes in-person events and provides a news feed, XING is more focused on connecting people who have professional interests in common. Xing is not intended to replace LinkedIn, but it can be useful for businesses looking for international opportunities.
XING is a social media platform
XING is a social media platform that connects professionals around the world. It allows users to showcase their skills, search for jobs and stay up-to-date with industry news. It also provides a platform for networking with business partners.
Unlike other social networks, XING’s profile and content are largely community-driven. Members generate discussions, organise events and schedule meetings themselves. In addition, Xing provides ongoing technical support and assistance, with users able to contact the company’s support staff directly via email, fax and post.
XING’s acquisition of Socialmedian is part of its push to become more of a full-service professional network. The acquisition will enable XING to offer more integrated solutions and better compete with LinkedIn. The new Applications Platform division, which will be headed by former Jobster CEO Jason Goldberg, will enable developers and content providers to connect with the XING network.
