Don’t want to answer that? Looks like your Facebook page just answered it for you. Some job interviewers use social media to answer questions they shouldn’t ask.
During the interview process there are certain question that aren’t allowed to be asked, but job interviewers have discovered a digital loophole to avoid breaking the law. Digging up dirt on their job candidates, employers use social media to find answers to personal questions they aren’t supposed to inquire about.
Students fresh out of college are experiencing this phenomenon—after going on a job interview their interviewers will request to be their “friend” or become on of their followers. Putting students and job candidates in between a rock and a hard place, they fear not accepting the request or the follow might put them at a disadvantage for getting the job.
