Executive Summary
Prevalent literature on the utilization of recruitment sources by jobseekers show that informal sources, in particular, networking (which includes employee referrals and the use of social networks on social media), are more effective for job search than formal sources. This paper suggests that more jobseekers employ networking than they do newspapers, company websites and online job boards in their job search activities. The way people use their social networks in job-hunting appears to be influenced by their collective culture and this culture may inspire the practice of favoritism in the recruitment process. Mixed-methods research was performed on a sample of 84 Nigerian jobseekers residing in Lagos State. The data and available recruitment literature both seem to agree that more jobseekers use their social networks in job-hunting than other methods. It also explains that Nigerian jobseekers perceive that favoritism is a rampant practice in the labor market and they believe that before a jobseeker can achieve employment within a recruiting organization, s/he needs to know someone within that organization who will help them in securing employment.
