How To Use Social Media To Job Search
In the beginning, it was all fun and games. But social media isn’t just used to connect with family, snoop on your ex-boyfriend or keep up with the latest influencers anymore. In recent years, it has become a valuable job search tool that many potential candidates underestimate. In a survey of recruiters and hiring managers conducted by LiveCareer, Facebook emerged as the clear winner for managing your professional social media presence (74%), followed by LinkedIn (56%) and Instagram (49%). As many as 68% of recruiters said job seekers need a LinkedIn profile in 2021, and 65% of hiring managers said that they don’t mind being contacted by potential candidates on LinkedIn.
