Social recruiting is a contested term. It is a concept at the intersection of recruitment and the embryonic field of social media. There are several terms used interchangeably including social hiring, social recruitment and social media recruitment. The most popular Social Media sites used for recruiting are BranchOut, LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Viadeo, XING, and Google+.

Research shows that nearly 75 percent of companies check out potential candidates on social networks. And they’re not just digging for dirt. More and more, HR execs and recruiters are turning to social networks to scout out promising job candidates, and with good reason.

One recent study by Northern Illinois University professors found study participants could more accurately predict a candidate’s likelihood to succeed in a particular job by browsing their Facebook profile than by evaluating detailed personality surveys.

Another study by professors at Cornell University found that job applicants were less likely to lie about past work experience on their LinkedIn profile than they were on a traditional resume. So, can your social networks help you land a job? In this infographic, learn how recruiters are using social sites and how you can optimize your online presence.

    If you’re looking for a job, then it only makes sense to maximize the use of your available resources. Social Media is a relatively new tool, and it obviously has its own learning curve that we all need to adapt to.
