Social Media for Recruitment – Infographic


In the past, in order to recruit employees you have to advertise opportunities in the local papers or hire local advertising agencies to put up bills on sidewalks and light posts. Today, notwithstanding the “post no bills” policies of most modern cities, recruiting employees via these methods is laughably obsolete.

Around 50% of all the people in North America use Facebook for recruiting, for example. Social media is a more up-to-date method for finding great people. Check out our infographic on social media for recruitment.

Additionally, you can check out Time Doctor’s employee monitoring software to give you insights into the productivity of your workforce.

    Thanks for this information. Wonder how many of the recruiting companies are using social media just to source candidates. The real power of social media will get unleashed when they start engaging candidates and building talent communities.

    Isn’t it contradiction when 92% of firms use social media and still 36% of them live in the Middle Ages and don’t?

    Also, your pie charts of Facebook and Twitter are switched (Facebook shows 54% and Twitter shows 66%, while it should’ve been otherwise according to your data).

    Clear, insightful and good-looking infographic though. I’ll use it as one of the sources in my research paper, thanks :).
