Do you think Recruiters are using Social Networking sites, to find the right talent?

Here is the 6th question which was asked to a group of 90 recruiters.

There is a lot of buzz about social networking sites like Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn etc. There are also lots of questions raised if these sites are being used by the recruiters or not.

Well, to find out the answers to some of these questions, i managed to pool in 90 recruiters, and asked them this question.

Here is what they had to say…………………………

It can be seen that it is slowly picking up, and will require some more time to reach the highest level.
