Now a days, social media plays a very important role in recruitment of new employees. According to a recent survey, more than 90% of companies use social media for hiring new talent, and among all the hired employees, more than 40% are hired through social media.
Whether you’ll be hired or not (through social media) depends on how you use social media, if you have been sharing stuff that you don’t want your recruiters to see than remove it from all your social media profiles before applying for the job.
And if you think that it’s just LinkedIn that makes sense to the companies than you are wrong, all your social media profiles including Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+, etc, matters to the recruiters, so use them wisely and make sure you make the most out of all these social media platforms.
Here’s an awesome infographic by Ciphr that will guide you to use social media in the best way to get recruited in your favorite company.
