How is social networking changing the job hunt for employers and employees?
Regardless of what level of success we've achieved in our careers, searching and landing the perfect job can be an arduous process of countless cover letters and few face-to-face interviews, and when looking for the ideal candidate to fill a role, we're often faced with stacks of faceless resumes from candidates with similar skills. Neither scenario is ideal.
Access to technology and improved global education have increased the pool of qualified jobseekers both locally and abroad, and the current recession brought the US employment rate to a 30 year high causing even more people to hot the virtual pavement to find work. In addition, HR departments are looking to ensure that their new hires mesh with their company's culture and grow with organization over time.
