Jackie Ducci, President of Dragonfly Personnel, knows a lot of job seekers do not appreciate recruiters using social networking sites in the recruitment process. But the reality is that we do use them,” she admits. Like many others she sees social media as an “Invaluable tool to many of us in the industry.”
This means it is now an imperative of job searching for a quality candidate to have a viable profile on Linked In. However many potential new hires do not show the quality and detail you will need in the workplace when they build their Linked In and Facebook pages.
A list of the top things for recruiters to look for at social media sites is attached.
No hiring decision should be made solely on social media usage. Additional elements in the hiring process are phone and in-person interviews, pre-hire assessments, and background checks.
The imperative is on the applicant. “Being extra cognizant of the image that they are projecting,” advises Ducci. ”It will always make [a talented applicant] more attractive to a recruiter or a potential employer.”
