The advent of social media networking sites has made the concept of digital staffing even more applicable for the gen-x workers. All the profiles are available in the net and that saves the cost of advertising through different channels. With the help of web analytics online behavior can be scanned and recorded and the suitable candidates can be selected based on their profiles and their personal interactions. This being a new concept has already been widely acknowledged for being able to suffice the requirements of the recruiters.
The point is if we spend more time online than offline then why not bring the process of recruitment to this sphere as well? It will not only save costs for the organization but also make way for a more transparent and reliable recruitment process that is not based on a person’s judgment. After the initial phase is taken care of, the recruiters can then make their final selection on conventional techniques.
Digital behavior is also more spontaneous than the results of measured psychometric tests, which have new nothing left to reveal. Even if a job seeker tries to modify their profile in order to grab the attention of the recruiters, they will ultimately be answerable at the interview panel. So, manipulation of profiles is not an option to consider!
