【新西兰】三分之一的人事经理承认利用社交网络观察候选人

One in three hiring managers admit to 'stalking' candidates online

One third of employers and hiring managers admit to sleuthing on their candidates via social media, according to a report from CV-Library.

One in four professionals admit that their social media profiles are not set to private, even in the face of potential recruiter stalking.

After surveying over 1,000 employees and over 200 recruitment professionals, the report found that 65% of candidates actually expect to be 'Googled' by their perspective employer, with 73% saying they're very careful about what they post online.

"Many employers and recruiters will use social media during their hiring process and it's clear that they are influenced by what they see online," added Lee Biggins, founder and managing director of CV-Library.

"However, if you're using social media as a screening tool, it's important that you aren't letting this cost you great candidates.

"Today's professionals are becoming more aware of what they're posting and the effect this can have on their job prospects. As such, you may not be getting an accurate impression of who your candidate is through social media alone.

"Screening calls and face-to-face interviews are still the best way to build a true picture of your candidate."?

Two thirds of recruitment professionals claim that selfies are not acceptable on professional profiles, with 60% of employees agreeing.

"The selfie craze has taken off in recent years, but it's clear that these should not be used for professional purposes," continued Biggins. "While these pictures might not be incriminating in any way, there are certain negative connotations that come with 'selfies'."

根据英国求职平台CV-Library近期所发布的一项报告表明,三分之一的受访雇主和人事经理承认他们曾利用社交媒体平台观察候选人。

受访的职员中,有四分之一的人承认他们的个人社交媒体资料是公开的,即使他们知道招聘人员会偷偷查看自己的信息。

调研人员采访了超过1000个职员和超过200个招聘专员,报告结果显示有65%的受访候选人期待被潜在雇主搜索到自己的信息,并且有73%的人表示他们会小心挑选要发出的帖子。

Lee Biggins是CV-Library的创始人和董事总经理,他表示:"许多雇主和招聘人员会利用社交网络媒体搜集候选人的信息。很显然,候选人在网上所发布的信息会影响招聘人员的判断。"

"然而,如果招聘人员将社交媒体作为筛选工具,那么就会有可能失去一些合适的候选人。"

"如今,职员们会对在网上发帖的内容会越发谨慎,对于帖子所带来的影响也会考虑地更多。因此,仅通过社交媒体网络,招聘人员可能无法得到候选人确切的情况。"

"通过电话和面谈的形式仍旧是了解候选人的最好办法。"

受访的招聘专员中,有三分之二的人表示,自拍的照片并不适用于个人的职业简介资料中,并且60%的雇员也同意这一说法。

Biggins继续表示:"自拍的热潮已经持续了好几年,但是很显然,自拍的照片并不能用于职业用途。尽管自拍照片本身并没有什么问题,但是可能会有潜藏的负面含义。"
