Yes, Reid does have a way of wanting to change the world and with all the hub bub about social media you would think that resumes and business cards were out of date. However, more recent data from the recruiting industry states differently. The number one way companies find candidates – drum roll please – is job board, then internal referrals. And for each 10 internal referrals, only one candidate is hired. Where did social media stack up? Less the 1% or down at the bottom. So while there is the “rage” for social media being the new way to find a job, it is still a multi level strategy that includes both online, offline, old school and new school tactics.
