Candidates sending powerful messages

…Ideas from Jeffery Giesener – CEO-

If you haven’t seen the video compiled by TweetMyJobs about social recruitment, I’d like to share it with you.

Watch the video on Social Recruitment (click below)

These stats are specific to the American market, but you can extrapolate these numbers globally.

Of the job hunters surveyed:

  • 29% use social media as their primary job hunting tool
  • 46% spend 6 or more hours on social media sites job hunting

Of the companies:

  • 57% says it improves company branding
  • 52% of companies say social media produces more applications

BUT 92% of companies only spend 10% on social recruiting initiatives!

(So what’s the rest doing? Job board postings and newspaper advertisements? Also, LinkedIn is not the only social recruiting opportunity!)

It certainly looks to me like Candidates are sending a powerful message to recruiters: GET SOCIAL!
