WOODSIDE, Calif., May 27, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ken Fisher's money management firm, Fisher Investments, announced the launch of new hiring efforts, utilizing popular social media channels to help find prospective candidates.
The firm began using social media in early 2011 as a means of expanding the reach of its educational materials. Supported by its in-house research staff, the firm produces a number of educational resources for both clients and the general public, including research reports, investment guides, and more. It distributes this content through a variety of websites and publications, along with an array of social media channels including Google+, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
Now, the firm is expanding its use of social media to aid in recruiting. "We're excited to broaden our social media efforts to help with talent acquisition. We hope this new effort, in combination with our traditional channels, reaches more prospective candidates," said Group Vice President of Human Capital Jill Hitchcock.
The firm is actively searching for qualified individuals. Many positions available offer immediate hands-on experience, broad exposure to the firm's business and extensive initial training. Likewise, continuous on-the-job mentoring and education provide the chance to build a lasting career at Fisher Investments.
