I recently overheard two job seekers speaking about their plans to ensure that their LinkedIn and Facebook profiles are "employer appropriate."
It is not surprising that there has been an increase in the number of employers, particularly small business owners, who screen candidates' social medial profiles. Small business owners want to ensure that the individuals they hire are right for their business.
It takes time, resources, and money to hire and train someone. A profile may reveal photos of a candidate partying, abusing illegal substances, or engaging in other questionable behavior. The information is readily available and free. It could help you avoid hiring someone who is not the right fit for your business.
