6 Social Media Stats Recruiters Need to Know

The era of job boards is over. Recruiters in the modern talent market need to attract passive, not just active, job candidates in order to find and retain the best hires.

Why? Because these are the places where virtually all job candidates—passive and active alike—already spend their time. Thus, your next hire could easily encounter your employer brand messaging on a platform like Snapchat, taking the first step on the candidate journey before submitting an application at your company.
