How important a role can social media play in your job search or recruiting efforts? New research by Bullhornshows that nearly eight in ten (79%) of U.S. job opportunities are posted on at least one social network, and that the majority (55%) of jobs are posted to two or more social networks at a time.

Which social networks are the most popular for job postings? Not surprisingly, LinkedIn takes the lead with 77% of openings shared there.  A majority of job postings to social sites are on Twitter (54%) and just one in four (25%) are on Facebook.

Of course, not all jobs are posted on social media: over one in five (21%) of jobs are not posted to any social sites.  Nearly one-quarter (24%) of jobs are posted to only one social network, 55% of jobs are posted to two or more social networks at a time, and 21% of jobs are posted to all three social networks (LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter.)
