Job hunters beware: Social recruiting is the next big wave to influence the hiring process.
Shon Burton, founder of HiringSolved, says his company has analyzed and created profiles of up to 100 million people by scouring their unblocked online activities on Facebook, Tumblr, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, Pandora and many more social media sites. This is all done, he explains, to answer three key questions in real time: Who are you? What do you do? And, how do I contact you?
Burton’s company isn’t alone. “What we do is build a digital résumé on every Twitter user. We know everything about every Twitter user – their skills, their experience, where they’ve worked, what they do in their spare time, their hobbies and more,” says Joe Budzienski, CEO of Gozaik.
