Employment, Social Media, and Background Check

Published on by Lena Moss

Employability is currently on the rise as businesses continuously boom and improve due to economic progress within each of these companies. Regardless of whether the business or company is big or small, we can’t deny the fact that their constant progress entails the need for employees and the expansion of the business, or the rise of another company building. With that in mind, their need for new employees will come sooner or later. But sadly, some companies make mistakes that affects their businesses and companies when it comes to hiring applicants.

 

Social media is where people connect with each other, share their memories, and spread good vibes about their life and other’s lives. It is where they share to everyone their thoughts, feelings, and other interests in life. It is, therefore, a place where information is found, and there’s plenty of it within social media accounts, and within itself. People share their personal information with their friends, whether it be public or private. But regardless of whether it is public or not, it still functions as an area filled with personal information.

 

 

Now, companies sometimes make the mistake of using social media accounts as a source of information for employment purposes. Although it is not a bad idea to do that, it is somehow questionable, due to the anonymous nature of social media. Some people tend to falsify their social media accounts as a form of cover up to hide their real identities, or to avoid letting the public know about them. They do this by writing false age, address, and other things such as concealed profile pictures. In the case of employment, they can’t trust information such as this. What they need is information that is true, and can be trusted.
