There are so many mistakes in this. 92% of companies do NOT use social media to recruit. Only 13% of LinkedIn users use it daily – made up of recruiters, sales, marketers & entrepreneurs.

I think it’s very interesting to create an infographic that will only be addressed at 8% of companies as everyone else seems to be using LinkedIn already 🙂
