Hiring and the Double-Edged Sword of Social Media
By now most of us are aware of the influence social networking sites have had on the hiring process. We’ve heard the stories about what sites like LinkedIn, Twitter and especially Facebook have done to help or hinder candidates in the job application process. Some of those stories are doozies, too. But that’s not the point of this blog post.
What we’d like to point out is that social networking can be a double-edge sword. For all the information and details that you can glean off of these sites about potential new hires, there’s information out there about you and your business as well. Are your personal and professional status updates, tweets and comments reflecting the image you want them to? It’s hard enough these days to find the perfect candidate for your job opening, be careful not to turn them off with a bad first impression you didn’t even know you made.
