Posted by Chadd Balbi on April 16, 2014 at 8:52am 2 Comments

How To Effectively Use Social Media To Screen Candidates

 Let me guess. You already are using social media to screen candidates. And you are not alone. According to a recent survey by Reppler, 91 percent of people involved in hiring decisions at their company said they do too.The problem is that recent studies have shown that this can be a highly ineffective and, in some cases, illegal way to screen candidates, if done incorrectly.
