A colleague of mine recently asked me a VERY good question: “do you still need a Linkedin page even if you already have a job?” My answer was: “ABSOLUTELY!”
According to the 2013 Social Recruiting Survey Results published by Jobvite, 94% of recruiters and companies either currently use or plan to use social networks to support recruiting efforts. The top three social networks for recruiters are Linkedin at 94%, Facebook 65%, and Twitter 55%. In my previous blog, I wrote about how recruiters can use social media to expand recruiting efforts. Therefore, I decided to write about ways job seekers (whether active or passive) can use social media in their job search.
