Over One Million Candidates Use Social Media Profiles to Apply for Jobs

PR Newswire (12/23/15)

More than one million people in the third quarter of 2015 used their social media profiles to apply for jobs, according to a report from iCIMS Inc., a provider of software-as-a-service talent acquisition solutions. The report is based on an analysis of iCIMS’ customer base data of approximately 4,500 organizations. The computer services industry had the highest percentage of applications submitted via social networks, while the hospital and securities industries had the lowest percentage of applications submitted via social networks.

The gaming industry received the most applicants per open position in the third quarter. The leisure, telecommunications, food and beverage, and energy industries also had more applicants than needed to fill open positions. Transportation and distribution employees remain in high demand, consistent with previous quarters in 2015.
