LinkedIn's recent research indicates only 15 percent of workers globally are completely satisfied in their current jobs; 45 percent are passive candidates, but open to speaking to someone about new opportunities. Recruiters seize on this population of passive candidates and recognize that social recruiting helps them tap into well-qualified workers. Increasingly, recruiters are turning to social media to locate candidates that match the qualifications of open positions, underscoring that talent-seeking via social media is fast becoming the norm in the recruitment industry.
