For the past four years, Jobvite has conducted a nationwide study looking for social networking trends and dynamics within the job seeking population. Their 2014 results reveal some interesting surprises, including questionable workforce loyalty, an improved understanding of social network etiquette, and a clearer picture of today's social and mobile job seekers personas. A key takeaways is: Today's job seekers are demonstrating more keen awareness of the ways in which social media can help - or hinder - their job searches. Recruiters hoping to snag high-quality talent should take note of where candidates prefer to search for employment and which networks serve their needs best. And companies should also pay attention to what social job seekers are looking for, particularly if they hope to keep their superstars for larger than 6 years.
