NOVEMBER: Finding Right-Fit Candidates through Social Media

It's no secret that employers research job candidates' social media profiles to help them make hiring decisions. In fact, social media presence has become vitally important in the hiring process. According to the MRINetwork 2017 Recruiter Sentiment Study, over 80 percent of employers and 90 percent of recruiters review social media profiles sometimes or all of the time for insight on candidates.

With the advent of social media, companies have more information than ever on job candidates. Hiring managers and HR departments can put together a more comprehensive profile of candidates, beyond what might be seen on a resume or gleaned during interviews. In addition to information about experience and skills, they get a better glimpse into their lifestyle, values and cultural fit.

As global experts and leaders in the search and recruitment industry, MRINetwork recruiters conduct searches every day in virtually every industry at the executive, managerial and professional level. They have a keen awareness of the overall job market, as well as the factors and trends that affect it. In June we partnered with the Martec Group to conduct the MRINetwork 2017 Recruiter Sentiment Survey, across
our approximately 400 worldwide offices, to evaluate the current employment landscape, and to project its direction in the months ahead. Insight was also gained from candidates and employers across a variety of industries and regions throughout the U.S.
