Yes, there are that many reasons your next job should be found through Social Media. In fact, this is the number of people that have used either Twitter, LinkedIn or Facebook for finding a job this year in America alone.

Personally, I think that this is a mindblowing number. It’s also interesting that LinkedIn comes in 2nd after Facebook on top and Twitter third for getting you a job. Here is the breakdown in numbers:

  • 18,400,000 people found a job through Facebook
  • 8,000,000 people found a job through Twitter
  • 10,200,000 people found a job through LinkedIn

To get an even better idea of how job hunting has been facilitated through Social Media, check out this infographic here:

How have you found your last job?

I think this shows that Social Media and the power it has these days is even stronger than I thought. If that many jobs have been triggered through it, the sustainability of Social Media seems to be proven more evidently than ever.

How about yourself? Was Social Media involved when you found your last job? Could it be useful for your next one?
