Get Back to Work FasterErica Swallow of Mashable posted this and with so many out of work (and I was personally featured in the book Get Back to Work Faster), I deemed it important to share – and I LOVE infographics. Thanks Erica. Erica’s bio follows the post.

Savvy job seekers have turned to digital and social media tools to help them in their job searches, and now recruiters are on board with the power of social media as a recruiting tool.

LinkedIn isn’t the only social network that helps in the job search process — Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Google+ have all been used by people to land jobs in innovative ways.

And interesting takes on the digital resume are increasingly popular, with job seekers creating infographic resumes, video resumes and other visual resumes that set them apart from other job applicants.

Employers are taking note of the importance of social media in the recruiting process, and the majority of businesses are turning to social media to find and evaluate job candidates, according to this infographic compiled by Career Enlightenment, a resource for online job seekers.

Take a look and let us know what you think of using social media to find a job.
