Over 70% of recruiters conduct social media checks on candidates. Most of these checks were being completed manually, taking anywhere from 30 minutes to several hours.
The majority of this time was spent on conducting searches on search engines and social media sites, trying to get a picture of how the candidate portrayed themselves online.
So, we had an idea.
We could build a platform that could automate all of this search and analysis effort and provide recruiters and other people who conduct background checks with a simple, concise, accurate report that highlighted any red flags and gave a snapshot of the candidate’s online persona.
Our vision is that social media checks become part of every hiring decision.
