Caution! Using the Internet and Social Networking Sites to Screen Applicants
Employers and recruiters have discovered a treasure trove of information on potential job applicants by using social networking sites â€” such as MySpaceâ„¢, Facebook, LinkedInÂ® â€” and various search engines. However, it is important to remember that using these sites can present many risks, including issues related to privacy, discrimination, authenticity and reliability. If these sites are wrongly used, even if unknowingly or unintentionally, it can do significant damage to your â€œemployment brand,â€ as well as expose you to litigation and negative publicity. This session advises you on how to stay out of trouble.
Through case studies and viewing different Internet sites, attendees will learn exactly how to screen candidates online. In addition, the group will evaluate the pros and cons of using Internet sites, learn associated privacy and discrimination laws and attain invaluable strategies for navigating legal and practical roadblocks when using search engines or social networking sites.
