Did you know that one in six job seekers found their last job through a social network, and that more than half have used social media to look for work in the past year?
Facebook heads the way, picking up some 44 percent of this job seeking activity, followed by LinkedIn (26 percent) and Twitter (23 percent). The numbers for ‘super socials’ (highly-active users with more contacts that the norm) are even stronger: 28 percent found their last job through social networking, and 85 percent of those did so via Facebook.
This infographic from Jobvite takes a closer look at how people are using social media to search for and find work.
