Hello readers, welcome to weekend chit-chat. I was at a friend’s place last night and the conversation flowed towards social media. Somebody mentioned that companies are checking potential hire’s Facebook profile before the job offer. I was not so sure about it and decided to give it a check.
This morning Google directed me to a post in PC world, where CareerBuilder.com revealed some number. 20% of companies admitted checking Facebook/MySpace profiles. And the number of rejection is more than number of acceptance, 33% vs 24%.
“Use of drugs or drinking and the posting of photographs deemed ‘inappropriate’ or ‘provocative’ were identified as the most popular reasons why employers eliminated a candidate after viewing their social networking profile.” ~ Mentioned by PC World.
