Join Hudson Job Search on Monday, June 7, at 7:30 p.m. for “Modern E-Tools for a Modern Job Search” by Zoom to learn the most current ways to utilize social media in your job search. The majority of good jobs are found through networking. But, are you aware of what recruiters and those doing the hiring are using these days?

The majority of employers and recruiters now leverage social media when on the hunt for candidates. The most popular platform is LinkedIn. However, more than half use Facebook, and nearly half use Twitter.

But this use of social media is not just focused on (relatively) old established social media channels; a rising number of recruiters report utilizing Snap-chat, Instagram, and other smaller platforms during the recruiting/hiring process. Therefore, if social media is important to recruiters and employers, using social media during the job search by you the job seeker is also very important.
