Using Social Media Aptly
Have you recently been asked about your social profile at an interview? Have you had to hide certain details because you have unmentionable web activity? Well, beware of what you put online, because it could come back to bite you.
Social Media plays an important role in the recruitment cycle and it is important to understand the system. A recent research conducted by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) showed that 76% of companies already use or are planning to use social media sites for recruiting. Like any new technology, Social media must be handled safely since this medium is both private and public and has delicate boundaries. Both, the candidates and the employers should remember this when using social media for recruiting.
