77% of All Jobs are Posted on LinkedIn [INFOGRAPHIC]
I just had dinner with a job-seeking friend lamenting the number of jobs listed in the local paper. It seems someone may be missing out on three-quarters of all available jobs: LinkedIn. (He confirmed he’s on LinkedIn, in case anyone is concerned.)
Nonetheless, some great statistics substantiating the power of LinkedIn for job seekers and recruiters (of course 97% of them are on LinkedIn, so I suppose that goes without saying). Let me know what you think about this one, and pass it on to your job-seeking friends!

Interesting article Jim, and I must say that the figures you provided regarding the perecentage of jobs listed on Linkedin was kind of surprising.  The more I think about it however, it certainly begins to make sense. I have noticed many of my Linkedin connections listing job postings.  A friend of mine just lost his job, and has been spending his time trolling job boards, so I will definitely tell him about the opportunities Linkedin presents.
