Facebook and Twitter Are Very Important For Hiring Hourly Workers
UPS uses facebook and twitter for hiring hourly workers and LinkedIn to hire professionals. Last year 2000-3000 hires out of the more than 50,000 people they hired cane from social media channels including Facebook and Twitter. The head of recruiting explained that these hourly workers tend to be young students who are working part time. Such students have a Facebook profile but not a LinkedIn Profile. I came away wondering what happens when these students graduate and look for permanent jobs. They might still use Facebook to look for jobs.
