The technologies introduced by the internet have made job hunting easier and more accessible than any time in history. What used to a cumbersome task that required one to create resumes, search for prospective employers in the yellow pages and cold call business -- among many other inconveniences -- now requires little more than a cup of coffee, some time and a lot of patience.
Online recruiting tools make the job hunting task for employers easier as well. By having access to a database of potential job candidates, along with their associated information -- such as their resumes, social media account handles and perhaps photos -- they no longer have to be inconvenienced with meeting one person after another simply based on what they see in the persons resume.
Since online recruiting removes most of the face-to-face contact that used to be a staple of the job search, some things employers should look out for when screening potential applicants are:
1. The format of their resume
With the countless amounts of resume templates available, there is no excuse for a person to have one that is not formatted appropriately because it indicates a lack of an ability to pay attention to detail.
2. Always look at public facing social media accounts
More can be told about a person from their social media interactions than by even meeting them. In general, the way a person conducts themselves on social media networks is highly indicative of how they would conduct themselves in the work place.
