With 92% of companies using social media to recruit and 3 out of 4 recruiters checking candidates’ social profiles, it is easy to see how important the world of social media is to the recruitment and employment industry.
Whilst LinkedIn is still the number one social media platform for recruitment, Facebook and Twitter are following in LinkedIn’s footsteps. These networks are proving to be a cost-effective and successful way in which to recruit new staff. Job seekers are also using social media, with 29% using it as the main tool for finding a job.
