Dubai, UAE, June 5, 2016: Eight out of ten fresh graduates in the UAE are more likely to use social media for a job search. This was revealed in a new survey conducted recently by the leading talent management and outsourcing firm TASC Outsourcing. 

Social networking platforms have become the primary go-to for a job search among graduates in the UAE, the survey reveals. LinkedIn and Bayt.com remain by far the most popular job hunt websites. Reasonably, more than 75 per cent of the respondents also believe that their personal social media and digital footprint does have an impact on their future job hunt. 

The survey investigates into the job search trends among fresh graduates in the UAE. It was conducted during the recently held Careers UAE 2016, and consists primarily of Emirati graduates aged between 20 – 35 years. 

Commenting on the survey, Mr. Abbas Ali, Vice President of TASC Outsourcing, said: “The survey gives a good insight into the impact of social media on young adults today. We found that more than 75 per cent of the respondents are active on social media platforms on a daily basis which also influences their job search. More than 80 per cent of fresh graduates today use social networking platforms as the primary source to find a job. It is an interesting insight, especially for employers to find the skilled talent they are seeking.”

The survey shows that the job seekers are most likely to research the interview panel online prior to their interview. More than 60 per cent of respondents said they would, apart from also looking up the company website and recent stories on Google before an interview.
