Social Media and Background Checks

Today and yesterday, I was fortunate enough to attend a local SHRM event where I learned (and shared) a lot of data on HR Trends, especially as it pertains to social media. (Look for a post about that soon.)

If I had this infographic in my back pocket today, I would’ve referenced it to all concerned. I am posting it now with the hope that it still proves useful.

How employers Screen Job Applicants:

# Over 90% of recruiters are screening candidates through or using social media
# 47% of employers look at social media profiles
# 69% rejected a candidate based on their social media activity
# Facebook and Twitter are being used to screen candidates at a very early stage of the process for personality profiling


How are employers screening job applicants?
