Social Media Made Simple
In a little more than a decade, social media has become fundamental to the way billions engage with one another — now more than ever for easing pandemic isolation and building community.
With social media being an important part of many people’s lives, it’s not surprising social media has influenced the world of recruitment with HR professionals using social network background checks for hiring and screening needs. Social media background checks provide vital information that help employers minimize the risk of a bad hire.
What is Social Media Screening?
Pre-employment social media screenings are background checks that look at a job applicant’s profile and activities on social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn to identify red flags that might go unnoticed in a typical background check and ensure that candidates are a good fit.
