How Social Media Could Affect Your IT Recruiting Job Offer

As a prospective IT recruiter candidate, you will go through the hiring process and be asked certain questions. A hiring manager has a limit to the types of questions being answered. Most of the questions will be around your experience and IT recruiting skills. Very rarely will they ask personal questions about your life.

Since the spread of social media, applicants’ information has become very accessible. These websites are public to a certain extent. You provide your personal information voluntarily and have the right to take down or not participate in these websites.

More and more IT staffing companies over time are using social media to find out more information about the prospective IT recruiters they are hiring based on their social media pages like Facebook and Twitter. They have access to your personal life – your pictures, who your friends are, what activities you partake in and even some of the comments you make to friends or vice versa.

As more hiring managers utilize social media, IT recruiters Boston need to figure out what they want to put on the internet. Remember that whenever you upload pictures, they potentially become public. Therefore, make sure to double check what information you have volunteered to the “public” as companies will be able to see this information.
