LinkedIn / Most Popular Site for Social Recruiting finds Bullhorn Reach

If you’re beginning to think every one is using LinkedIn to source candidates, you’re close to right.

Nearly every survey on source of hire or use of social media by recruiters shows LinkedIn to be a key part of the mix; often it leads all the listed social media sites. The company itself reported adding 2,400 customers in just the last quarter of 2012, bringing the total to 16,400 organizations under contract.

Now comes a Bullhorn survey to report that of the 160,000 registered users on Bullhorn Reach, 97% use LinkedIn to source candidates. That’s not as surprising as it might seem at first glance.

Bullhorn Reach is a freemium site specifically for managing a social media program and posting jobs to the sites and to some job boards. Bullhorn Reach users are all committed to at least some level of social media interaction.

    I love the info you provide here and can’t wait to take a look
    whenI get home. I’m shocked at how quick your blog loaded
    on my phone .. I’m nott even using WIFI, just 3G ..

  4. You really make it appear so easy with your presentation but
    I find this topic to be really one thing that I believe I might by no means understand.
    It kind of feels too complicated and very vast for me.
    I’m looking forward in your subsequent post,
    I’ll try to get the hang of it!
