If there is one thing that I learned at the ERE Expo conference targeted at recruiters and career professionals earlier this month, it is that social networking is a key way that recruiters identify and source candidates. Have you beenÃ‚Â hesitating to use social media for your job hunt? Maybe you think it is a fad? Take a look at this video fromÃ‚Â Socialnomics…
A few key points:
Facebook added 100 million users in less than 9 months! If Facebook were a country, it would be the world’s 4th largest.
80% of companies are using LinkedIn as their primary way to find employees.
Are you making it easy for people to find you? Watch this if you think social media is not important. It may just change your mind!
