Recruiters are not using Facebook and Twitter to Recruit Candidates

According to a recent study by Bullhorn Inc , recruiters are not using Facebook TM  and Twitter TM to recruit candidates instead preferring other jobs focused social media to appeal to job seekers.

This is not surprising as Facebook TM itself is often used by recruiters to conduct references on candidates even though that is a serious non-no. Websites like Jobosabe and LinkedIn TM are much more appealing to recruiters on the front-end of the search when looking for candidates as they are focused on business and in the case of; JOBS.

What is the difference between and LinkedIn TM? Well for openers the latter has been around for the better part fo a decade. For most of that time it has been difficult at best to make introductions where candidates interested in getting introduced to recruiters and business pro's had to wade through layers of connections to get that done and often the introduction got waylaid by a LI user that didn't pay attention to their emails. LinkedIn TM is focused largely on management professionals while provides a voice for individual contributors, early career candidates and the trades. is LOCAL, supported by a growing number of newspapers and employers across the US. LOCAL jobs, LOCAL Employers and LOCAL Candidates.
