social media

According to CareerBuilder’s 2016 survey on social media recruitment, the use of social media to find and screen candidates is on the rise. Nearly two-thirds (60%) of employers use social networking sites to research job candidates (it was just 22% in 2008) and nearly as many (59%) use search engines to research candidates as well.

On the surface, this seems like a no-brainer: it’s an easy way to get a glimpse into who this person really is. 

Social media can be a minefield for businesses these days, especially when it comes to monitoring and setting policy for employee use of social sites. The risk of social media is not just inflammatory or ill-advised tweets that reflect poorly on your company; it’s also falling out of regulatory compliance and finding your business vulnerable to legal action
