Google Your Candidates As Part Of Your Selection Process

Several years ago there was a report of a highly recruited law school graduate who was offered and accepted a job with a prestigious law firm.  Prior to bringing the new hire onboard, the law firm searched the internet on the new hire and found several compromising photos from her recent spring break.  The law firm rescinded their job offer claiming the photos if/when viewed by their clients would compromise the firm and damage their reputation.

The fact is in today’s internet world we are all researched online by our associates, customers, and prospects.  It is common practice to view someone’s LinkedIn profile and Facebook page before meeting them and you should expect your customers are doing the same with your team.  Selection screeners must review the online profiles of candidates with the same scrutiny as a resume to prevent an embarrassing situation after the hire.

Empower your team to add an online screen to the selection process and you’ll have more successful hires.

    As informações dos usuários do Google+ já compartilhadas com um círculo limitado de
    amigos permanecerão visíveis apenas para aquele grupo, assim como quaisquer anúncios que incorporarem aquelas informações, disse Google em uma
    publicação em seu site explicando os novos termos
    de serviço.
