When I first speak with prospective clients, we talk about the new world of job search. Many of them haven’t been in a search for many years. Many have never had to look for a job.
They often don’t understand that the best campaign to land a job today includes different strategies than it did even a few years ago.
Many of the new clients I speak with are surprised to learn that most recruiters and hiring authorities use LinkedIn and other social media to find and assess good-fit candidates more than any other method.
Yet some new executive job seekers are hesitant to put themselves out there, and include social media in their job search toolkit. By ignoring social media, they greatly decrease their chance of being found by the very people they’re trying to attract.
Jump over to my Executive Career Brand blog for a look at some statistics Jobvite compiled on recruiters’ use of social media to source candidates.
