Abstract

This timely resource offers fresh research on companies’ use of social media platforms―from Twitter and Facebook to LinkedIn and other career sites―to find and hire personnel. Its balanced approach explains why and how social media are commonly used in both employee recruitment and selection, exploring relevant theoretical constructs and practical considerations about their appropriateness and validity. Contributors clarify a confusing cyberscape with recommendations and best practices, legal and ethical issues, pitfalls and problems, and possibilities for standardization. And the book’s insights on emerging and anticipated developments will keep the reader abreast of the field as it evolves.
