Screening Applicants Using Social Networking Sites: Legal or Liability?

SKU:WC-1018062
Date / Time: Recorded
Format: Webinar
Order:Qty:
Description:

Employers and recruiters aren't only using search engines to find information on applicants but are now examining social networking sites, such as Facebook®, LinkedIn® or Twitter® as well as blogs and other online sources.

For job applicants, social networking sites are places to interact with peers in any manner they choose. Entries on these sites are typically not meant for employers to view. Conversely, some job applicants feel they have been denied opportunities unfairly by employers or recruiters snooping on social websites, and viewing materials out of context or web entries meant just in fun for friends.

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
