Social Media and the Job Hunt

Jobvite recently completed their 2013 Social Recruiting Survey which can be accessed on their website.

Did you know that...
  •  94% of recruiters utilize social media sites in their recruiting?
  • 78% of recruiters have hired using social media?
  • 73% plan to increase their investment in recruiting via social media versus 42% for on-campus recruiting?
  • LinkedIn is the top social media site for recruiters (94%) versus Facebook (65%)?
  • 93% of recruiters report looking at candidates' social media profiles?
So, what are the takeaways for you given these facts?  
  • You must have a complete LinkedIn profile if nothing else.
  • You should have a well-planned and sound web presence.
  • You need to be cognizant that what you do on social media may impact your success landing a job
