The role of networking and social media tools during job search: an information behaviour perspective
Robertson, P. (2016, June). The role of networking and social media tools during job search: an information behaviour perspective. Paper presented at Conceptions of Library and Information Science (CoLIS) 9, Uppsala University, Sweden.
The paper provides a critical evaluation of the extant literature pertaining to the networking behaviours of young jobseekers, and the adoption of social media tools during this process. Based on the premise that networking is an information seeking activity, an existing model from information behaviour theory is proposed as a framework for exploring in greater depth the concept of networking during job search.
