Jobvite recently published a free ebook entitled 33 Essential Social Recruiting Stats, and this eye opening collection of information reveals that employers are already stepping up their efforts to recruit through social media sites because this method is, well, effective.
One interesting statistic that Jobvite published is that 73% of surveyed people between the ages of 18 and 34 found their most recent job through social media. Jobvite also published that 55% of surveyed companies indicated that they would invest more in social media hiring this year. This means that social media hiring is likely to increase in the future.
Most recruiters already pore over social media sites and the internet to find candidates with relevant skills, and, while many large companies are laggards in adopting social media as part of their employment strategy, they are beginning to see the benefits.
One challenge that employers face is that they do not have the in-house knowledge to effectively use social media for employment purposes. Using a third party can help organizations make the most of internet recruiting, as many of these third parties already use social media for recruiting purposes.
SimplicityVMS is one third party VMS system that integrates with social media sites, making it easier for employers to directly hire their contract and temporary workers through social media.
