Ok this is a very good article by John Zappe. But for the life of me I cannot see were this survey is pointing to social networks thriving for recruiters.
There are some good points. Referrals have been the top dog in 3rd party recruiting for 30 years. Applicant Tracking Systems must understand the power of referrals. Job boards and corporate web sites are interconnected. Staffing software needs to address both and recognize the connection. The information on the broad sense needs to be digested by any recruiter or recruiting firm manger and digested into “what am I going to do next” (strategic plan).
