A recent report published by Jobvite, a leader in web 2.0 recruitment technology, indicated that 80 percent of the 438 HR managers surveyed use or are planning to use social networking to seek out candidates this year; 72% plan to invest more in Social Networking as a recruitment tool and invest less in the use of 3rd party recruiters and search firms.
