Is social networking important for Jobseekers? Last year a survey done by Jobvite says yes it is!
The dominant social network is still Linkedin with Facebook and Twitter not far behind
So are employers checking your social profiles? Yes, they are!
The survey says that almost 75% of employers check your social network profile; LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter and about 48% check even when the candidate does not provide them with a link. Wow!
Jobvite also found that employers scrutinize social media activity, more than 50% of the hiring side (employers, HR agents, Scouters) have a negative reaction to seeing a spelling or grammar mistake in a social profile. The consensus is they like to see a professional look and frown on posts of drunkenness, foul language, and bad grammar.
Yes, employers are checking your online profiles!
So what do employers want to see (or not see)? These are some of the results the survey uncovered:
Social Recruiting At its All-Time High
We agree with the survey at Jobvite and recognize the importance of “social recruiting”. It has moved from just a trend to a necessity. Employers are using your social networks more and more to hire and find suitable candidates so it is advisable to put some thought and effort into what you display on the internet. No longer exclusive to LinkedIn, all social networks are now fair recruiting game.” Interestingly, the survey notes, “71% of HR and recruiting professionals consider themselves moderate to exceptional social recruiters.”
So we at Europe Language Jobs will be doing a survey soon to determine more of what is important for Job seekers, especially multilingual Job seekers. Keep an eye out for our poll.
