The State of Social Recruiting 2011

07/13/2011 | By Kimberley Kasper

What’s the state of social recruiting in 2011? We’ve integrated big picture findings from three studies related to social recruiting into this new infographic.

  • Just published: the findings of our fourth annual Social Recruiting Survey, conducted in June, which polled more than 800 U.S.-based human resources and recruitment professionals on their social recruiting activities and intentions; see the report for all the stats.
  • Also new : the Jobvite Index,  which aggregates social recruiting data drawn from Jobvite customers. (Social recruiting applications by Jobvite are used by over 500 companies, such as Whole Foods Market, Starbucks Coffee Company, Zappos.com, Inc., Yelp and Etsy.)
  • Our  Job Seeker Nation Survey, published November of 2011, a nationwide online omnibus survey of 2,180 adults (aged 18+) on employment status and resources used to find job opportunities.
