Recruiters Turn to Social Media to Find Candidates

With the economy improved, albeit slowly, recruiters are looking in nontraditional places to find potential employment candidates according to The Boston Herald:
Will Boland, chief administrative officer for Sageworks, a Raleigh, N.C.-based firm that analyzes industry financials, said some recruiters would post openings on sites such as CareerBuilder, Craigslist or LinkedIn, but not all of them. The biggest frustration in posting jobs this way is the sheer volume of responses.
More employers are using social media sites such as Facebook to find candidates, while others are hitting the streets in search of workers.
