Recruitment through social network is the current business and industry recruitment model. Effectiveness often is dependent on the following: · Spamming nodes with unwanted forwarding requests results in Job descriptions often being dropped in the nodes and not reaching the destination. · Learning whether the nodes are willing to forward the requests. · Identifying the path to reach a target node given a set of nodes that has varying forwarding capacity. Our discussion with the HR partners indicates that their response over the social media is as low as 3 percent.

Social Recruiting: Orchestrating targeted information cascades for improving social influencers' response under budget constraints
Technical Problem & Goals:
Given a recruitment network and set of JD under two scenarios
o JDs appear in sequence at different times, and they have to be routed with budget constraints in place, and
o Group of JDs appear at the same time, they have to be routed such that they do not conflict with each other.
Our aim is to the aim is to orchestrate the information to the right targets by
o Identifying the influencers under budgets and budgets can be at the individual level or at the group level.
Increasing the chance of returns for a JD by allowing budgets for certain skills at the receiver node. o Example - not more than 1 JD with java skill will reach node "d" that has a java skill.
o Supposing there are two JD's with the similar requirements then only one of them should reach the candidate so that

Competing JD should not be sent to the same person even intermediate person.
2 sets of constraints
o Constraints that define which nodes are to be targeted
Matching of the JD and the skill
Position in the queue and number of JDs already received
o Constraints that define the paths to reach the target nodes
Level of influence
Budget, in terms of number of times node is willing to forward JDs Willingness to forward
