Jobvite’s sixth annual Social Recruiting Survey reveals just how much social recruiting has permeated the HR arena. With more than 1,600 HR and recruitment professionals as respondents, the survey has some surprising finds, including:

  • How much LinkedIn is loved by the HR community (93%)
  • But how many are also inclined to use Facebook (65%) and Twitter (47%) for promoting employer brand
  • And just how much posts about “sex, drugs, and rock & roll” can hurt one’s chances of getting hired (hint: a lot)

While job seekers can get tips and tricks on how to leverage the use of social media during a job hunt, employers looking to hire using social media can learn more about the how to apply the results of the survey.
