Summary:The polls, conducted in Canada and the United States on behalf of California-based recruitment firm Robert Half International, showed that most executives believe that professional networking site.

  • The polls, conducted in Canada and the United States on behalf of California-based recruitment firm Robert Half International, showed that most executives believe that professional networking sites will prove useful over the next three years for job seekers.
    "Networking sites can be used to identify new career opportunities, create online profiles that highlight one's skills and experience and build a roster of business contacts over time," Max Messmer, chairman and chief executive of RHI and author of "Job Hunting for Dummies," said in a statement.
    Of 100 senior Canadian executives interviewed, 67 percent said they thought professional networking sites -- such as LinkedIn -- were useful for recruiting new employees, and 25 percent said they thought social networking sites like Facebook would be useful.
    Executives were asked: "Which of the following technology tools do you believe will be most useful in your firm's recruiting efforts in the next three years?"
    In the U.S., 150 senior executives asked the same question by RHI last week showed similar results. Of those polled, 62 percent said professional networking sites were useful for recruiting new employees, and 35 percent said social networking sites were useful.
    Although online networking can play a role in helping people to find work, Messmer said job seekers should continue to use traditional job-hunting methods.
    "Tried and true methods, such as networking at industry events, submitting well-written resumes and cover letters, and diligently following up with hiring managers are still essential to landing the ideal job," Messmer said.
    RHI provided five suggestions for benefiting from online networking:
    * Craft your profile carefully
    * Ask for recommendations
    * Build your list of contacts
    * Don't post anything you wouldn't want an employer to see
    * Don't stop networking once you have a job

    (Agencies) 几项最新调查表明,求职者应该去在线社交网站寻找工作机会。
    这几项调查受美国加利福尼亚的“罗伯特半国际招聘公司”委托,主要在加拿大和美国开展。调查结果表明,多数企业高管认为,在未来三年内专业的在线社交网站对求职者会有很大帮助。
    RHI的主席兼首席执行官麦克斯•梅斯默在一份声明中说:“用户可通过在线社交网站寻找新的工作机会、创建介绍个人技能和工作经验的在线档案,还可建立一份长期业务联系人名单。” 麦克斯曾著有《傻瓜求职指南》一书。
    在加拿大100名受访高级主管中,67%的人认为专业的商务社交网站(如LinkedIn)能帮助他们招聘新员工,而25%的人则认为类似Facebook的在线社交网站对招聘员工有帮助。
    在调查过程中,受访的高级主管们被问到:“在未来三年内,你认为以下哪种技术工具对贵公司的招聘工作最有帮助?”
    在上周开展的调查中,共有150位美国高级主管被问到了同样的问题,他们的回答与加拿大受访者类似。在美国受访高管中,有62%的人认为专业的商务社交网站对招聘新员工有帮助,35%的人认为在线社交网站有用。
    梅斯默说,尽管在线社交网站在帮助人们求职方面的确能发挥一定的作用,但同时求职者还是应该沿用那些传统的求职方法。
    梅斯默说:“采用那些切实可靠的方法对于找到理想的工作仍然很有必要,比如在行业活动中建立联系,提交一份好的简历和自荐信以及与招聘经理保持密切联系等。”
    在求职过程中如何更好地利用在线社交网站?RHI为您提供了五条建议:
    精心创建个人档案
    请求提供推荐职位
    建立联系人列表
    不发布你不想让招聘单位看到的信息
    找到工作后不要停止“社交”
