A New Era in Recruiting

A New Age of RecruitmentLast year, 84 percent of recruiters and human resources departments used social media to reach passive candidates, people that might not have otherwise applied.

In 2012, companies used social media for recruitment in more than 80 percent of job openings?

Additionally, 7 out of 10 employers successfully hired a candidate through social media. Since using social media for recruitment, nearly half (49 percent) of companies benefited from a larger pool of talent to choose from.

Social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn have a tremendous impact on the business strategy of companies, in virtually every industry, and recruitment is no exception.

By proactively targeting passive job seekers through social channels – online job postings and other applicant tracking systems attract only five percent of the workforce – firms broaden their scope and dramatically improve the quality of their workforce.

This infographic from  RemarkableHire takes a closer look at this new era of recruitment.
