    The report affirms the ROI of social recruiting, with 60 percent of recruiters estimating the value of their social media hires as greater than $20,000 per year, and 20 percent estimating the value as greater than $90,000 per 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."
