Effects of social network profiles on (E-)recruitment: An international study
MetadataShow full item record
The exponential growth of Social Networks offers us manifold opportunities by being part of a large network. We are able to have immediate updates of (international) events and share information. The advantage is paired with risks about potential influences on our (social) life. With everyone being able to submit information, it is likely to be presented in an inappropriate way in public. And this can happen without even noticing, e.g. if a connected friend is publishing the information. In this paper, we present an international study where we asked many students about the awareness of their profiles in Social Networks and if they believe that this could influence their job applications. The study is matched with a survey of human resource manager if and to what extent they use information being visible in Social Networks. The poster visualizes the results for countries like Germany, U.S., Afghanistan, and China, and demonstrates how different the perception of Social Networks still is.
