Social Media and Your Job Search, Perfect Pair

This is a quick post by Robbie Palmer in Undercover Recruiter about a global study paid for by Adecco, a global HR solutions provider, on whether and how social media is being used by recruiters and job seekers alike. They conducted a survey between March 18 and June 2, 2014, collecting responses from 17,272 candidates and 1,501 recruiters from 24 countries. Suffice it to say that social media use by both stakeholders is trending up.

And take a moment to look closely at this Infographic from the report. There are probably a few things on it that you already know, or may find useful, or may change how you approach and plan your next career move.

In summary, don’t underestimate the reach and strength of your social network and worst of all, don’t ignore it. Your career will likely find it’s start there.
