The Kennedy Recruiting Conference was held in Orlando last week and while I wasn't able to attend, some of the recruiters who tweet kept us updated. Here are some interesting stats tweeted last week:
—LinkedIn adds 35,000 new members daily. 41 is average age.
–If MySpace was a country it would have the 11th largest population in the world.
–11% of all all Internet time is spent on MySpace compared to 2% spent on Google.
–36% of CEO's lack confidence in their own company's recruiting department.
–90% of revenue earned by job boards comes from job posting and resume searching. Commodity products. They will go away.
I'll post some other comments, along with my thoughts about the statements, in the next day or two. Stay tuned!
