What’s on your MySpace, Facebook, or Friendster page? Did you know that the content on your social networking page could keep you from getting a job? Yup, it’s true. More and more companies are viewing your social networking page as part of the hiring and background check process. I, myself have viewed candidate’s social networking pages prior to giving them the job offer. Within the last year, I have attended a training seminar with the topic of navigating social networking sites and use during background check process.

More to come later this week about how to use social networking to your advantage in the job hunt. Check out the youtube video to learn more about recruiter’s dirty little secret, viewing your social networking page as part of the hiring process.
