2011 was an interesting year, to say the least, for job searching and recruiting.
Facebook has come full circle, from the site you should keep out of your job search to the site you should be using to job hunt, recruit and network professionally with apps like BranchOut, BeKnown and LinkUp, for example, for both job seekers and employers.
For 2011, and moving forward to 2012, it's all about mobile and using social networking sites to job search and recruit. According to a SHRM survey, 68% of organizations are currently using social media, with 19% coming on board the social media bandwagon in 2011. Facebook leads the pack when it comes to the sites companies are using: Facebook (45%); LinkedIn (34%); Twitter (28%) and YouTube (18%).
Social hiring is only going to grow in 2012 with more employers creating branded Facebook and LinkedIn company pages, tweeting job openings, using Facebook and mobile applications to source candidates, advertise job openings and accept job applications, and actively networking with and recruiting candidates on social networking sites. Job seekers are tapping into social networking sites to complement their other online job searching activities.
