Social Media Screening: The New Norm for Finding Potential Job Candidates

With how transparent social media is now making our lives, recruiters have now started making the shift in the ways that they screen employees who are trying to get jobs at their companies. When a recruiter conducts a social media screening, they are getting a glimpse into the life of the person, other than what they present in front of them in the interviews and selection processes. When incorporating this into the recruiting process, these talent acquisition agents get to know more about the person they potentially want to give the job to.

While conducting social media screening, it is essential to be able to understand a few things that can contribute to the analysis that you infer upon. There are also different sociological implications that people belonging to different groups tend to have when they post on their social media profiles. People who are in their thirties and forties might not have the same posting trends and platforms, which is why a recruiter needs to be able to understand what each age group entails.

For example, let's take two individuals who are applying for positions at a company. One of them is twenty-five, while the other is forty. Both of them have Facebook, which you want to check out to see which one would be better for the job. The younger person regularly has pictures of his nights partying and drinking, while the older person has a Facebook page that is relatively reserved. The presence of pictures of the younger person drinking doesn't necessarily signify they he would be better for the job as compared to the forty-year-old. The younger generation live in an age where it is alright to post pictures of every aspect of their lives on social media, while people in older age groups might not feel it right to do so.

One of the things that social media screening helps with is to understand the patterns that people have in their lives. If there is a person who posts pictures of them partying almost every night, you know that the person might also be a borderline alcoholic or someone who isn’t going to be fully dedicated when asked to stay back late from work. Raising up a red flag in the screening process. Similarly, if a person constantly posts motivational videos and pictures on their timeline, you know that this person might bring a bit of optimism along with them to the workplace.

While screening people using social media, it is important to understand what information you can use, and which you can’t. Things like religious affiliations, age, gender, sexual orientation are all aspects of information that you cannot use when trying to decide your ideal candidate. If you end up making your decision based on any of these factors can lead to a rise of a discrimination suit against the company, which is why caution must be asserted while doing this.

That’s where automated programs like FAMA exist. Using automated processes, these programs can make the process of social media screening easier and a lot more efficient. Software like this make the process of scanning candidates easier by making use of some of the most advanced screening AI, giving you accurate results. They also minimize the probability of human error, which can sometimes happen when recruiters go through the process of screening potential candidates.

Online Grocery Shopping for Chinese New Year


Being mom of two boys, I am always on the go and has to fetch my kids from school also send son for tuition. Busy parenting didn't stop me from shopping groceries, online shopping is convenient now. Next month will be Chinese New Year, there's lot of preparation for it. Today I took time off to attend the 11 Street x JOCOM: Cooking Up Prosperity Launch at One City.

Preparation work for Chinese New Year, especially the reunion dinner, is often extensive and time-consuming. As the festive celebration is around the corner, 11street – Malaysia’s number two online marketplace – has reinforced its partnership with JOCOM to bring prepping and shopping for Chinese New Year grocery items to another level of convenience.


This partnership is off the back of 11street’s grocery category emerging as one of the platform’s continued focus in 2018, in which it saw more than 30% increase in its gross merchandising value (GMV) in 2017 as compared to 2016.


Bruce Lim, Vice President of Merchandising at 11street said: “More Malaysian consumers would start to explore shopping for groceries and other household items online. This holds true and as 2017 comes to an end, we expect this category to only flourish from hereon.


“This motivates us to strengthen our collaboration with JOCOM and become the e-commerce platform that offers great variety of fresh produce and other frozen goods as food preparation for Chinese New Year heightens. With our host of offering coupled with our established technological prowess, we aim to enable consumers to use our platform as the go-to channel to fulfil all their grocery needs, especially during the festive season.”

Featuring Chef Cheah Kee Khiang, a prominent chef in Malaysia, and hosted by well-known host and TV personality, Wong Chui Ling, the show will feature simple-to-follow Chinese New Year recipes using fresh ingredients available on JOCOM’s online store at 11street.


Joshua Sew, Chief Executive Officer of JOCOM said: “When we first partnered with 11street last year, we wanted to expand our outreach to a wider community. More importantly, we hoped to empower Malaysians with the convenience of shopping for groceries and other household items online. As a way forward, we produced the cooking show to showcase that Chinese New Year preparation can be made simpler if they know where to get the ingredients and how to best prepare them, without the need to leave their homes.”
