ACCELERATE, SMARTER, JOB SEARCH STRATEGY in a tough economic climate

If you aren't up-to-date YOU risk a VERY long job search.

  • FOR most of us, a job search, fortunately, is NOT something we do often enough to be proficient. So, when the time comes to job search or networking to find new opportunity, we must look at what is effective NOWnot what we did when we last hunted for a job 2, 5, 10, or 25 years ago.

  • EFFECTIVE job search methods have changed a great deal because recruiting methods have changed dramatically with the widespread use of job boards, search engines and social media as well as increased employer dependence on Applicant Tracking Systems ("ATS") for resume screening – that is YOUR Profile doesn’t reach the hiring manager or recruiter unless it has successully passed the ATS.

  • HIRING: When it comes to hiring, 78% of recruiters have hired through a social network, and the leading network for hiring is LinkedIn by a very wide margin. While 92% of recruiters have hired through LinkedIn, only 24% have hired through Facebook, and 14% have hired through Twitter.

  • RECRUITING: Most of the 94% of recruiters who use (or will use) social networks for recruiting will be using LinkedIn, and the preference for LinkedIn is significant with 94% of the "social" recruiters using it.

    LinkedIn is the most popular site for recruiters by far, as the data below reveals. Of the social recruiters, LinkedIn clearly dominates in key uses, according to a recent JobVite survey:

    • 95% of recruiters use LinkedIn to search for candidates.

    • 95% use LinkedIn to contact candidates

    • 93% use LinkedIn to "keep tabs on" potential candidates.

    • 93% use LinkedIn to "vet candidates pre-interview" (vs. 32% on Facebook and 18% on Twitter).

    • 92% posted jobs on LinkedIn (vs. 48% on Facebook and 39% on Twitter).


    Job search has changed substantially. The combination of increased technology (search engines, social media, and applicant tracking systems) and a tough economy have made it even more important that a job seeker catch up to what's happening NOW.
