Press for Bullhorn

Armed with definitive data from the online activities of 35,000 recruiters, Bullhorn, Inc., which recently launched theFIT, an uncensored career site for company insiders and job seekers alike, released "The Bullhorn Reach Social Recruiting Activity Report." The report offers insight into the usage of social media in recruiting, and finds that LinkedIn leads in all facets among the "big three" social networks: LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter. It measured the networks' frequency of usage by recruiters and their effectiveness for sourcing candidates.

Developed by Bullhorn, Inc., theFIT helps you get inside the heads of current or prospective co-workers by asking burning questions that reveal the true story of a workplace. Because life is short and the workday is long, theFIT is on a mission to make your office a place you want to work.
