Digital recruiting has certainly come a long way in such a short time. Since the dawn of the computerized job process, quick and simple strides have been made in recruiting that have ultimately produced a major impact on how employers find young talent with the right skills. Of course, it’s no secret that one of the biggest advances made in recruiting in the last 20 years has been the advent of social media. These networking platforms — LinkedIn being the most noteworthy — have altered the foundation of recruiting to allow for more efficiency, higher speed and better results.
But why not introduce social media into other great tools of recruiting? This infographic, with research and art provided by Jobvite, not only chronicles the major leaps in recruiting since the ’90s but also shows how social media can be cleverly integrated for even more efficiency. Of course, these changes are in sync with the way that job seekers are handling their own search — Pew Research estimates that 65% of adults use social media for their own job search.
Check out the infographic below. How important is social media to you when looking for a job or finding a potential employee? Let us know in the comments.
