Hungarians use social media to seek employment

In Hungary

Adecco’s international survey, involving over 17,272 collected responses from job seekers, reveals that 61% of Hungarian individuals looking for work use social media as a means of finding employment.

Facebook is by far the most used social networking site for professional job seeking activities (40%), making Hungary one of the few countries that use LinkedIn less for this particular purpose. LinkedIn however, does follow closely behind Facebook in terms of job search queries (24%). Among the various social networking sites, Facebook and LinkedIn are considered to be the only effective platforms in terms of matching supply and demand.

A reported 33% of job seekers use social media to distribute their CVs online with 26% of the total number of job seekers being contacted through social media by a recruiter at least once. The use of social media for job search purposes is less common among those with a weak network (both online and offline), and increases in proportion to the size of one's network.
