This year's data underscores that social recruiting is an essential HR practice used by 94 percent of surveyed recruiters across industries, up from 78 percent in 2008, the first year the survey was conducted. In an indication of the increasingly competitive hiring environment, only 1.5 percent of respondents predict that hiring will become less competitive in the coming year.

Jobvite, a leading recruitment platform for the social web, recently announced the results of its annual Social Recruiting Survey. Now in its sixth year, the Jobvite annual Social Recruiting Survey was completed in July 2013 by more than 1600 recruiting and human resources professionals.

"It's no longer a question of 'are recruiters using social media?'" said Dan Finnigan, president and CEO of Jobvite. "It's a question of how. We've seen a significant jump in social media engagement over the years; in 2013, it's a given. Companies are ready and willing to pay for the best talent, and now they're looking for ways to optimize spend on their recruiting programs to find those people. Social recruiting provides a way to quickly and easily find those 'under the radar' candidates -- people who might not be actively looking for a role, but who are a perfect fit for open positions at your company. This data speaks to the power of social recruiting, and it is exciting to think about what's on the horizon."
