The new infographic 'Recruiting Technology: a Social History' explaining the differences in hiring practices over the past decade depicts how social media sites have revolutionized the workplace. Resume databases, career sites, recruitment marketing and being able to manage workplace relationships through the web are just some of the ways that these sites have completely re-worked offices and careers.
Making it easier for candidates to find employers and vice versa, recruiting technology has improved the efficiency of a job search. Being web and tech-savvy has become an invaluable asset that is a make-it-or-break-it factor in almost any job search in the 21st century. As a result, career profiles, online networking abilities and Web strategy is a must-have for working professionals now. Sites like LinkedIn and Monster offer the greatest chance for the nearly 50% of Americans with jobs to find better jobs, and the 65% of American adults using social media to keep up with their client and business relations.
