Digital and Social recruiting has certainly come a long way in such a short time. Since the dawn of the computerized job process, quick and simple strides have been made in recruiting that have ultimately produced a major impact on how employers find young talent with the right skills.
It’s no secret that one of the biggest advances made in recruiting in the last 20 years has been the advent of social media. Social networking platforms – such as LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Google+ – have birthed social recruiting, thereby altering the foundation of recruiting to allow for more efficiency, higher speed and better results. Social recruiting is the future of recruiting and it has come to stay!
This infographic, with research and art provided by Jobvite, not only chronicles the major leaps in recruiting since the ’90s but also shows how social media can be cleverly integrated for even more efficiency. Of course, these changes are in sync with the way that job seekers are handling their own search — Pew Research estimates that 65% of adults use social media for their own job search.
