Social networks are helping people find new jobs. In fact 32% of professionals in India have acquired new jobs with the aid of such networks, revealed a survey done by professional networking website LinkedIn.
Candidates can get information about companies, their culture, opportunities easily on social media. According to the survey,  companies like Orange Business Services, cyber security firm VMware, management consulting firm McKinsey & Company and business process management company Genpact are the top recruiters on social media.

“The job market today has transformed into a candidate’s marketplace wherein candidates choose their employers, as opposed to recruiters choosing them,” said Irfan Abdulla, Director, Talent Solutions, LinkedIn India, in a statement.

Organisations are restructuring their recruiting teams to work on building relationships with potential candidates and engage with them on relevant platforms. This move is creating an ecosystem where recruiters, organisations and job seekers interact for individual, professional and business growth,” Abdulla added.

The top recruiters are ranked based on their effectiveness in attracting and hiring talent using LinkedIn for the period starting January 2016 to December 2016.
