Do Companies Use Social Media Sites for Hiring?

November 14, 2011

A  survey this year by the Society of Human Resource Management ( SHRM) found that 56% of companies use social media  for recruiting, up from  34% in 2008.

The site most commonly used is LinkedIn ( 95%)

52% of recruiters believe that these sites are efficient for recruiting executive/upper management (CEO, CFO), up from 22% in 2008. 58% also believe they are efficient for recruiting other management positions, up from 13% in 2008.

84% of recruiters say it is the best way  to recruit passivejob candidates, those who may not apply or be actively looking for a position.  We know that some companies today like to recruit just those candidates who are currrently working.  Using a site like LinkedIn may give then  more control and expand the base of candidates they consider.
