Social Media Is The Hot Recruitment Tool

The Sacramento Bee in an article titled Job Front: Social media are growing recruitment tools reported that "[e]mployers in greater numbers are relying on social media to recruit new talent," according to Jobvite's 2013 Social Recruiting Survey. The Sacramento Bee noted that the survey "showed about 94 percent of employers either use or plan to use social media to recruit workers." It also noted that "Pollsters found that social-network giants Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter remain the most popular tools to recruit talent, but that employers are also using YouTube, Instagram, blogs and other social media to find new employees. Still, LinkedIn leads the way among those hiring officers polled."
