The job landscape has changed drastically over recent years, especially with advances in technology and an increasing number of employers going online to do their recruiting. A rise in the use of social media has also elicited an increase in social media job innovations, in which companies and job seekers are using social networking to find candidates and jobs, respectively.

Social media job innovations vary; there are social networking sites that cater to both employers and job hunters, such as LinkedIn, and other apps and tools that specifically help those looking for work. Still others are based on crowdsourced employment, allowing job hunters to log on to find odd jobs. Regardless, it is apparent that social media job innovations are on the rise, especially as online mega-sites like Facebook get in on the action.
