A majority of U.S. organizations report utilizing social media as an official part of their hiring process, and more may be using it casually.
On one end of the spectrum are recruiters and hiring managers who sometimes take a quick peek at a candidate’s social media profile and posts. At the other end of the spectrum are automated web scraping and social media background check services that are an official part of evaluating every candidate.
