At TMP Government we have a number of examples of recruitment utilizing social media outreach strategies.
Would be happy to help submit some examples, specific to diversity outreach there may be some interesting research out there that would would suggest social media can be a great way to promote engagement and support diversity recruitment event strategies. i.e. Facebook becomes more diverse as Latinos, blacks join at rapid pace – San Jose Mercury News: http://bit.ly/8BhL6S via @addthis

The US Department of Energy is about to open a sim in Second Life for recruiting. My source is Eric Hackathorn (SL Hackshaven Hartford and http://hackshaven.com/), the builder/manager of this and the fabulous NOAA sims. Eric or the others involved could be potential speakers at some point in the future.
I’m hoping that we can leverage this development into a PR and collaboration opportunity for DOE-funded EFRCs (Energy Frontier Research Centers) by setting up some displays and sponsoring virtual world talks by Center participants. I’m told the new sim now has security clearance to open from the highest level at DOE. Whether we can use a little space on this sim or convince them to expand is totally up in the air, but I have high hopes.
I’m the Communications Director for the PARC: Photosynthetic Antenna Research Center (10 institutions including 2 international, with 17 PIs). Our website at http://parc.wustl.edu is just getting started. We are also using http://parc-wustl.ning.com as a private internal network. I am helping the three others on the administrative team to get oriented in Second Life, and we hope to experiment with virtual community building. Other social media-related plans include streaming and archiving monthly seminars from/to all the PARC sites.
One challenge we have already faced is the firewalls at Oakridge, Los Alamos, and Sandia National Labs. We experimented with Adobe Connect Pro, and they could not get access from their offices. Any insights from GovLoop and Government 2.0 members would be greatly appreciated.
Now that I’ve written this, I think I should post it into the open conversation here too. 🙂
Regards and best for the New Year,
PARC Communications Director

We at Alumwire would like to be considered for a speaking engagement. Will you send me some more information on how we can become one of your speaker? I need more information on cost, time commitment, etc.? Members of our executive team have been traveling the U.S. promoting Alumwire and how social media and the capability to connect in real time with degreed candidates from world class universities is going to change the recruiting game. It’s the “Facebook meets LinkedIn meets Corporate Recruiters” concept.
Feel free to call or email me with more information.
