Whether or not it’s ok to utilize social media profiles and/or a person’s social media activity during the applicant screening process is a question that often comes up when talking with HR pros or recruiters about using social media at work.
As usual, I’ve got some opinions about that question, and I recently was asked to share them on the Intuit Small Business blog by writer Kevin Casey. The short scoop is, I’m not a Fan of it.
Find out why by checking out the full interview on the Intuit blog – “Why It’s a Bad Idea to Check a Job Applicant’s Facebook Profile”.
So what do you think?
To Google or not to Google? That is the question. Leave a comment and let me know your thoughts. I’d love to hear your opinion as well!
