Description

This study examined applicant reactions to an organization's potential use of the applicants' online social networking presence (SNP) as part of the personnel selection process. An experimental group of applicants were informed that an organization to which they were applying for an entry-level job would check the applicants' SNP as part of a selection process that also included a personality assessment and skills inventory. A control group of applicants only completed the personality assessment and skills inventory. A control group of applicants only completed the personality assessment and skills inventory. Interestingly, there were no differences in applicants' reactions between these two groups. Participants' general online privacy concerns were related to privacy setting use. Additionally, participants' evaluation of the organization's use of SNP checks was related to all applicant reaction and organizational perception constructs.
