Did you know that 1 in 6 job seekers credit social media as a key factor in landing their current job? Did you know that 92% of employers use social media for recruiting?
Those are just two of the reasons you need a social resume that are identified and quantified in the Social Resume Infographic from OnlineColleges shown below. If you’re still not convinced that you need to create a social resume, take a look at some more statistics:
- 93% of recruiters use LinkedIn to find job candidates.
- 66% of recruiters use Facebook to find job candidates.
- 54% of recruiters use Twitter to find job candidates.
The Social Resume Infographic includes tips to create your social resume, where to share it, and more. Don’t wait until you need to find a new job to create your social resume. You might miss a big opportunity if you wait too long.
Hat tip to Jason Thibault of Content Marketing Labs for bringing this infographic to my attention in his article, “Thursday Links: Optimizing Your Content for Local Search and New Facebook Features” where he included a link to my article about creating a Facebook Page and LinkedIn Company Page along with a long list of great resources!
