Scouting Candidates

Finding the right talent for a company is a huge factor and a bottom line difference maker. That’s why it’s important to do your homework before ever approaching a candidate. It’s critical to keep job requirements in mind to hire the most qualified candidate possible. Social media research can provide you with insights on attitude and professionalism.

Even if there’s no intention to contact the supervisor, this will hopefully influence the candidate to be honest throughout the interview process. This article was originally published in Inc.
