Cheat Sheet for Social Media Recruiting: HCL Technologies’ Journey [INFOGRAPHIC]

April 3, 2014

The 2014 Job Seeker Nation Study by Jobvite revealed that 94% of recruiters use or plan to use social media for recruiting. This essentially means that if you are a recruiter, you have probably tried your hand at social recruiting at some level.
