Using Social Media for Recruitment

In recent years companies and recruiters have taken to social media as a means of finding and hiring people. 92% of companies use social media for hiring, LinkedIn being the number one social platform used by companies to hire. This is not an unbelievable statistic by any means, you can use social media to find out more about a person than any interview would reveal.

What platforms are companies using for recruiting? Three main ones to be exact; LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook. In 2012 93% of companies used LinkedIn for hiring, 66% use Facebook, and 54% use Twitter. One of the biggest benefits to using social media is time, 20% of recruiters say it takes less time to hire and employee thanks to social media.

There are fall backs for using social media if you are trying to get hired that should be consider. You need to be careful about what you say and post on social networks. As this infographic by Staff shows below, 3 of 4 hiring managers check candidates social media profiles even if they’re not provided and 1 of 3 employers reject candidates based on something they found on social profiles. So it’s important, if you’re using social media, to be careful what you post especially so if you’re looking for a job.

Although social media is an ever growing tool used by employers and employees to find and hire, there are still some companies who don’t use social media for recruiting. 36% of firms don’t use social media for hiring, so don’t ditch that paper resume just yet.
