Adecco's Global Social Recruiting Study in 2014!

Whether you're a Job Seeker or a Recruiter, our study has some key insights for you.

Job Seekers: get the most out of the unlimited opportunities available through the proper use of social networks.

Recruiters: find out how to improve the quality of your professional social media practices.


Some background

The digital age is transforming the recruitment industry, allowing companies to reach targeted candidates and create new forms of employer branding, as well as helping candidates interact with their potential future employer. Recruitment is more dynamic than ever due to the uptake of social media, both for small businesses, as well as large corporations. For job seekers, social media is a valuable tool to find opportunities and advance careers.


The study

Recruiting is increasingly social and Adecco wants to know how it works. We conducted a survey between March 18 and June 2, 2014, collecting responses from 17,272 candidates and 1,501 recruiters from 24 countries. We want to understand how candidates search for jobs on social media, which tools they use, and how they present themselves online. We also interviewed the recruiters to discover how companies operate on social media, which tools they use, and what they look for in their recruiting process.


The study looks at a global, regional and local level on the areas of

  • The use of social media
  • The effectiveness of social media in matching job seekers with open positions
  • The importance of web reputation
  • The social capital of individual candidates
  • How recruiters explore the web when looking for a candidate
