Speed defines technology and communication now and that has had a major impact on recruitment trends in the last few years. One of the most telling trends in our LinkedIn 2012 Recruiting Trends India Research was that 35 percent of recruiters were utilizing professional and social networks to attract and engage talent. We have seen a change in recruitment behavior with employers focusing on building their employment brand online and on social networks in order to attract the best talent in the country.

Our research also shows that hiring is much healthier in India than in the rest of the world. A large part of that has been due to recruiters in India embracing innovative technology and the professional social networks that are part of this. With 35 percent of recruiters here utilizing professional social networks and 30 percent upgrading employment branding on various platforms we have seen a real dedication to innovate in India. In fact, LinkedIn recently announced the 12 best LinkedIn company pages of 2012 at a global level and Tata Consultancy Services company page featured on it.
