From The Social Graf MediaPost Blog today:[URL="http://www.mediapost.com/publications/?fa=Articles.showArticle&art_aid=153995&nid=128799"] 9 out of 10 Employers Recruit on Social Media Channels[/URL]. The number of employers that use social media to search for employees is steadily rising. Many may not even realize that their social media profiles can be landing them their next career opportunity - or could be losing a job offer as well. Quoted from the article:

[I]"The proportion of employers using social media to connect with potential employees, through job postings, referrals, headhunting, and the like, increased from 83% in 2010 to 89% in 2011, with 80.2% saying they already use social media and 8.7% saying they plan to begin this year (I'm not sure what explains the slight discrepancy between the 2010 and 2011 figures -- maybe 2.8% decided to stop using social media by the end of 2010). 55% said they will increase their budgets for social recruiting, and 64% said they have already used social media to successfully recruit new talent, up from 58% in 2011."[/I]
