JXT Consulting has appointed Mariah Gillespie as their Social Media Strategist. Mariah works in the social recruiting space, implementing marketing and recruiting strategies for recruitment companies across facebook, twitter and LinkedIn.

Mariah Gillespie is a graduate from UNSW with a masters degree in Journalism & Communications. During her studies, she wrote case studies on social media and took numerous classes on online media and the digital space. Working briefly in recruitment herself, she successfully placed candidates in some of Australia’s leading companies through social media platforms such as twitter.

Realising the significance of social media in the recruitment space, she joined the JXT team to help recruiters and HR managers implement social media strategies of their own, using the combined forces of JXT’s job board technology, SEO techniques and mobile site development.

“Whether candidates are looking for work on google, facebook, twitter or LinkedIn, from their desktop, smartphone or ipad, recruiters need to be sure that they have a strong presence across it all,” Gillespie says. “With enhanced features such as Realtime Search, Google will continue to incorporate social with search as algorithms are increasingly considering social influence in their ranking schemes.”

Gillespie managed an unconference session at the Australian Talent Conference last year, leading HR professionals and recruiters in discussions revolving around search and social. This April, she will be a speaker at the 9th annual HR Summit 2011 in Luna Park, Sydney.

“Mariah is already assisting over 40 JXT clients to realise the potential of social recruiting and I encourage more recruiters to find out for themselves why she delivers the results,” JXT CEO and MD Rick Maré says.

Originally from Michigan, USA, Gillespie also holds a bachelors degree in music performance and has lived in Sydney for more than two years. You can follow her tweets through @jxtconsulting and can also find JXT Consulting on facebook at
