Companies are increasingly tapping the social and professional networking websites to find right talent in India and abroad, says a new survey.

Further, more than half of the talent acquisition leaders in India surveyed by professional networking site LinkedIn are planning to hire more people in 2013 than last year. The findings are based on ‘LinkedIn Recruiting Trends’ survey that covered 3,300 talent acquisition leaders across 19 countries.

From India, there were about 274 respondents. “Since 2011, there has been a 20 per cent increase in recruiters considering social and professional networks as a key source to find quality talent; at 41 per cent in 2013 compared to 21 per cent in 2011,” LinkedIn said today.
