Job Recruiters Use Social to Vet Prospects Rather than Find Them

Job Recruiters Use Social to Vet Prospects Rather than Find Them

interview

I found the data in this infographic to be interesting because it’s kind of anti-hype. LinkedIn is a fascinating network (as are Facebook and Twitter of course), but it seems that digital recruitment is still done on job boards rather than social. I’m actually kind of bummed – I was hoping that some A&R guy looking for a middle aged rock star with mediocre guitar skills and middling blogging ability would DM me on Twitter….. :)

I’m curious to know your thoughts on this one.
