94% of recruiters use or plan to use social media for hiring
Only 36% of Job-Seekers are active on LinkedIn
Over 90% of employers use social media for recruitment and research, but a majority of job seekers don’t even have accounts on the biggest social media recruitment site, LinkedIn!
Plus many job seekers that have LinkedIn profiles haven’t optimized them for the job search.
An optimized LinkedIn profile is a great way to stand out!
55% of recruiters have reconsidered a candidate after viewing their social media profile.
61% of those reconsiderations are negative.
Employers pay close attention to your social media. Poor content can lose you the job!
38% of jobs are never posted publicly
A new tactic is for recruiters to find candidates through job hunter databases like LinkedIn, and invite them to apply for unposted jobs.
This helps hiring managers reduce the amount of candidates they have to evaluate.
If you don’t have a strong online presence, you may not even be considered!
A 2014 Jobvite survey found that recruiters consider six major categories of content to reflect negatively on candidates: Illegal drugs (83%), sexual material (70%), poor spelling/grammar (66%), profanity (63%), guns (51%), and alcohol (44%). Remove and avoid these types of content on your social media profiles.
Landing a job is hard enough. Don’t let your social media sabotage your job search!
