The Role Of Social Media In Pre-Employment Candidate Screening [INFOGRAPHIC]

Are you using social media to screen candidates for your latest job vacancy, or even before inviting them in for an interview?

You should. Indeed, it’s a growing trend, with two in five employers now using social media to pre-screen applicants. Two-thirds (65 percent) do so to gauge a candidate’s professionalism, 51 percent to see if they fit into the company culture and 45 percent to learn more about their qualifications.

It pays, too: 43 percent of employers said that they found information online that helped them decide not to hire a particular candidate. This visual from Go-Gulf.com takes a closer look at social media’s role in pre-employment screening.
