This research, conducted in collaboration with Ascendo Resources, looks at the importance of having a social media presence for job seekers, as well as social media strategies HR professionals use for recruitment. Overall, 87% of HR professionals said it was either very or somewhat important for job seekers to have a social media presence on LinkedIn, and 83% agreed it was important to be on a relevant professional or association social networking site. In the past year, nearly two-thirds of organizations (65%) had hired new employees who were sourced through social media sites.
