Social media: Employers eye 'media footprint' during hiring choices
According to carreerbuilder.com, 70 percent of employers have used social media, and 69 percent use search engines to screen candidates before hiring them. Social media accounts are becoming a key component that HR departments implement when deciding on who to hire, as social media can confirm or deny the qualifications of a candidate. More than half of employers found content on social media that caused them not to hire the candidate.
