Establish Social Media Strategy for Recruitment and Job Screening

Key Points

  • Social media can be a useful tool in the recruiting process, but employers should be careful in handling information they find online.
  • An employer should not attempt to gain access to nonpublic information, nor should it try to access the information by contacting others who may have access to an applicant's personal web page.
  • Inconsistent use of social media websites may leave an employer vulnerable to discrimination claims.
