LinkedIn Still Top Job Search Technology Tool

A whopping 94% of job seekers ranked LinkedIn as their number one social media site for job hunting according to an annual survey by Right Management (the talent and career management division of staffing firm ManpowerGroup).  HiringImage managers also prefer Linked in over other sites by two to one.

The survey polled 300 job seekers and 100 hiring managers, recruiters and human resource executives throughout North America.  Two thirds of the job seekers were Baby Boomers and one third were members of Generation X.  About 95%  are looking for a permanent job, up from 84% in 2010, while only 23% want to be entrepreneurs.
