Some companies don't consider Facebook a prime location to find quality employees, preferring to focus on more "professional" employment-related sites like LinkedIn or Monster.com. However, Facebook actually has many advantages for recruiting young, media-savvy, creative employees.
The Advantages of Recruiting On Facebook:
1. Facebook Has More Members Than Any Other Social Media Site
For sheer volume of candidates, Facebook can't be beat. It has over a billion members, more than 5 times as many as LinkedIn.
2. More People Are Looking For A Job On Facebook Than You Think
You may consider Facebook a site to share party pictures and reconnect with old boyfriends from high school, but in fact, 48% of all job-seekers (and 63% of people who have a Facebook profile) used Facebook to hunt for a job last year.
