Social Hiring Still the Preferred Tool of Recruiters

By Kelsey Cox | Small Business

Rumor has it that job boards are dead—or at least breathing their last breath—as LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter are rapidly becoming favorite sources among job hunters and recruiters alike. And for good reason: Users are encouraged to build strong professional networks and tap into infinite opportunities, while recruiters save time and resources when targeting relevant candidates.

Initially considered by many as just a passing craze, social hiring has rapidly proven itself as a valuable source of hire. According to Jobvite, social recruiting usage has constantly grown over the past six years, with most organizations (94%) now using social media to find and vet candidates. In fact, many companies plan to increase their investment in candidate recruitment by 73%, compared with 2012.

This infographic, compiling Jobvite’s latest survey’s findings, reveals social recruiting’s tremendous impact and it’s benefits for both job seekers and recruiters. Take a look below:
