Employers Lurk Online

www.EmploymentCrossing.com According to a survey by the Society for Human Resource Management, in the last two years there has been a 17 percent increase in human resources executives using sites such as Facebook, MySpace and LinkedIn as recruiting, resume verification and candidate screening tools The survey polled nearly 600 HR professionals. About 3 percent of recruiters are making social networking sites their primary recruiting source. Thirty-three percent of HR executives spend an average of one hour a week on social networking sites for recruiting-related purposes, while 15 percent spend five hours. The study concluded that negative information on an applicant’s profile has a greater impact on hiring decisions than positive information. The number one reason why employers use social networking sites is to recruit applicants who might not be looking for a job. The survey also showed that recruiters found social networking sites most effective in recruiting non-management and middle-management positions. Companies that don’t use social networking sites noted a lack of staff time and questions about credibility as the top two reasons.
