Are Business-Oriented Social Networking Web Sites Useful Resources for Locating Passive Jobseekers? Results of a Recent Study
DeKay, Sam
Business Communication Quarterly, v72 n1 p101-105 2009
The assumption that members of business-oriented social networking Web sites are passive jobseekers has never been validated. The purpose of this study is to examine the accuracy of this assumption. The study concludes that this claim is questionable and that the majority of members registered at one major site, and possibly others, are currently employed individuals interested in obtaining information concerning new career possibilities and prepared to act upon these opportunities.
