6 Social Media Sites Clinicians Use Most to Job Hunt

Clinician use of social media sites for job searching has doubled since 2010, with 42 percent of physicians, nurses, pharmacists and allied professionals saying they use social media during job searches, according to AMN Healthcare's 2013 Survey of Social Media and Mobile Usage by Healthcare Professionals.

The top social media sites used by clinicians for job searches are:

•    LinkedIn — 58 percent
•    Facebook — 42 percent
•    Google+ — 40 percent
•    HealtheCareers — 37 percent
•    Blogs/Forums — 25 percent
•    Miracles Workers — 18 percent

Though 42 percent of all surveyed clinicians used social media sites to job hunt, website use varied by specific profession. For example, just 28 percent of physicians reported using social media sites, while 47 percent of pharmacists did the same.

Survey data is based on responses from 1,902 clinicians.
