Is Social Recruiting Real? [Video]

Are recruiters using social media to recruit new talent?  The folks at the tweetMyJobs blog say yes, and have produced an intense video with a whole stack of statistics about the current state of social recruiting.  As they mention in their blog post, they try to focus on the specifics to deliver an honest appraisal of the current state of things, as opposed to many of the hyped up infographics of late.

Here are a few of the more significant statistics:

  • 50% of job seekers still spend most their time searching on traditional job boards
