Despite the social media boom, employers are not actively using social media to recruit and manage job applicants.

    Interesting article - I am surprised as much as 54% of companies aren't using social media. I wonder if this is because they don't see the value? already have effective recruitment solutions in place or simply don't know where to start?

    Or perhaps it is because SM is a reasonable medium by which to get your brand out there, but when it comes to managing genuine applications through subsequent processes that other CRM specific platforms are moving faster in terms of their specific functionality.

    I checked out the survey and although they do not let you read the report it was probably done in the UK and it is not possible to get an accurate measure of usage with only 138 responses. It would take about 300 responses to be 90% confident that the real percentage was +/- 10 % from their reported 54%. Hence instead of 54% the true average could be as low as 34% or as high as 74% because they have not surveyed enough companies.
