Like a single 30-something swiping through profiles on a dating website, recruiters are also finding their own connections through social media: job seekers. The most successful recruiters know that many professionals spend time scrolling through posts, and will make an effort to reach their audience where they are – online. According to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation, workers devote about an hour of their work day on social media. Whether it’s for business or personal use, employees are on social media and recruiters are taking note. According to a Society for Human Resource Management Study, 84% of recruiters are already using social media as part of their recruiting process. When you compare that to 2011 when only 56% of employers used it, you can see the rapid acceptance in recent years.
