It’s soooo very surprising to me in this economy how many individuals I talk to who are NOT using Social Media to look for work or even to just network. Everyone will take specific time out of their day to check Facebook, but they won’t think about using Twitter, Blogs or even Facebook to search out companies or a new career. Personally I think LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook are the main platforms to network and search out what others are saying about a specific organization or what opportunites are open or coming open.
Here’s a few stats that should be looked at.. I’m surprise LinkedIn isn’t top “dog”..
- 18,400,000 people found a job through Facebook
- 8,000,000 people found a job through Twitter
- 10,200,000 people found a job through LinkedIn
