Checking References Using Social MediaChecking References Using Social MediaThinking of using social media when checking references? Proceed with caution.Its illegal for an employer to ask about a job candidates religion, marital status or personal affiliations during an interview or when checking references.But before making a job offer, many hiring managers want to get a sense of a candidates personality and professionalism. Is turning to social media an acceptable option? After all, according to a 2015 study by JobVite, 92 percent of recruiters use social media to help find and hire candidates. With social media playing such a high-profile role in recruiting, some might say its just common sense to use it when checking references.Maybe so, but only if you follow certain protocols that help you avoid delicate legal territory.Check out ansicht mistakes to avoid when recruiting on social media.Privacy concerns to consider when checking referencesYour companys review of online informa tion can raise privacy concerns. The same legal constraints that govern interviewing apply to checking references. You may be able to read about various aspects of candidates quickly by reviewing social networking sites, but much of it could be inaccurate or irrelevant. And what you find on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram and other social media sites can include information that is illegal for you to consider during the hiring process.Think twice before using the information you discover about a candidate when making a hiring decision. Research published by the Social Science Research Network in 2015 suggests that some employers do exhibit bias based on their social media findings, which can create serious problems for everyone involved.Sensitive information requires a sensitive approachFollowing the trail of a candidates digital footprint can lead to some unexpected places, and once you see something, it can be difficult to make decisions without considering it. Thats why th e Society for Human Resource Management advises accessing social media profiles after a candidate has been interviewed, when his or her membership in protected groups is likely already known. That way you can focus on facts that may help you assess the work quality and professionalism of candidates, while any sensitive information you see wont be how you learned of it.Transparency in the hiring process can also help avert problems. Let candidates know that checking social media sites may be part of your approach to checking references. Assure that if you do check, youll only search for job-related information. If you let candidates know your intentions at the beginning of the interview, chances are they wont try to hide relevant information during the talk.The bottom line View checking references online as a complement to, elend a substitute for, traditional methods. The impressions and information you receive from face-to-face interviews and over-the-phone conversations are still t he best guides for making a hiring determination.This post has been updated to reflect more current information.Learn more about the pros and cons of pre-employment screening.

Heres how to identify yur office work type and what you need to do about itHeres how to identify your office work type - and what you need to do about itMuch like you have specific tastebuds for various cuisines or prefer to text over calling your closest pals, the further you progress in your career, the more youll solidify your working style. While your colleagues may excel in afternoon brainstorming sessions, you may experience your best creative flow in the early hours of the morning., halfway through your espresso. Or, you might enjoy a social setting to get you through your deadlines, meetings and initiatives, while your employee finds genius cranking through assignments solo. Thats why career experts explain the vast importance of not only identifying your working style, but also communicating it to your manager. Having this alignment will empower you to consistently operate at your top potential instead of taking a seat on the professional struggle bus.Trying to do work in a way that is opposite your work style is like trying to push water uphill. It goes against the grain, and that can impact the level of your performance, explains career coach Cheryl Palmer.If youre not sure of your unique advantages, the pros have advice on figuring out how you will work the most effectively, efficiently and happilyYoure a morning gloryUnlike your spouse who needs a few alarms and a not-so-gentle nudge to greet the sun, youre always amped to tackle the day, no coffee jolt needed. If you find it easy to sign up for - and show up for - a 5 a.m. bootcamp class - you might lean toward a morning working style. As the name suggests, professionals who fall into this category are lucky to have an innate morning energy, inspiring their first-rate work long before many co-workers arrive to clock in. You can project this early riser quality into your work culture, creating a positive environment for others to draw inspiration from.Make a point of popping your head into pe oples offices to wish them a good morning with a smile and some human interaction,finance, lifestyle and business expert Katerina Cozias says. Too often people are stuck on a computer screen, be it on their desk or on their hand, so if youre a morning person, remind people to be people and simply make a point of saying hello.Since you reap the benefits of quiet, uninterrupted working sessions in the morning, you might also be among the first to experience the inevitable afternoon dip. Thats why Cozias recommends letting your employer in on our prefered time of day for meetings and collaboration. You might even be able to negotiate leaving early than other folks who get in a good two hours after you do at your next review, too.Youre an office mom or dadWhile you - hopefully - arent packing your colleagues lunches or reading them night-night stories, if you are naturally invested into the lives and happiness of those you spend 9 to 5 with, you could be an office parent-style worker. In addition to speaking to your professional strengths in terms of loyalty and honesty, Cozias also says you need consistent interaction on a personal, human level to feed your stamina. To amplify your approach, Cozias says to seek and create opportunities where you can organize team-building exercises, or simple surprise-and-delight moments where you can raise team morale.Treat the office to donuts the last Friday of the month. Youll be able to leverage the giving tendency that comes naturally to you, while gaining some popularity points with colleagues in the meantime, she says.You might also let your employer identify areas of improvement to create a more cohesive and workspace and culture, earning you additional brownie points for your commitment to the company. (This also might win them over the next time you bargain for half-day-Fridays during the summer.)Youre a lone wolfIts not that youre an introvert or even someone who dislikes group settings, but when it comes to stickin g your nose to the grindstone, youd prefer to fly all by yourself to complete projects. Since constantly sporting your headphones might come across as standoffish or like youre not being a team player, being candid with your boss about your working style is especially important, according to workplace expert and career coach, Amy Cooper Hakim. Since the new trend of open office blueprints is one that many startups are gravitating toward, you may need to restructure your physical space to be productive. This could mean a different area of the office or the option to work from home during crunch time.You may need to work offsite or in a quiet area when you have a major deliverable pending. Tell your boss, In order for me to be most productive, I need to work on this deliverable in a quiet space. I am happy to work remotely or to come in early tomorrow to ensure this is finished, Hakim gives as an example.Cozias also adds that even if you flourish all by yourself, you shouldnt shy away from social interactions that will build trust within your team. This doesnt mean you have to attend meetings you find unnecessary or contribute to corporate gossip, but making a consistent effort to collaborate in some way establish your reputation.Organize weekly 30-minute group brainstorming sessions, where people who typically work in closed-private offices can congregate, bring their lunches and share personal stories. Here, they can explain how their experiences may be able to affect idea-generation for a project at hand, Cozias suggests. Because this gets people out of their normal routine, theyll be more excited to have a mind-melt, and you wont have to sacrifice your working style in the process.Youre a social butterflyOn the other end of the spectrum from an independent worker is the social butterfly.If you like to bounce ideas off of others and thrive on dialogue and interaction, then you are probably best suited for teamwork, Hakim explains. Though every working style h as their pros and cons, Hakim says being a collaborative worker is a characteristic you should highlight to your boss, and one you can use to forward your career. As long as your frequent drive-bys produce results and efficiency, many managers will be pleased to use your appetite for conversation to the companys advantage.Offer to participate in think tanks and brainstorming sessions. Share your ideas by playing devils advocate, and use your people skills to help gain support for important suggestions, she suggests.Just be mindful that not everyone feels the same zest for fraternization that you do by respecting other working preferences that dont match yours. If you find that a certain co-worker is fast to hide away when you walk into the door, make an effort to let them come to you, instead of involving them in discussions that might disturb their flow.Youre a deadline divaIf the idea of sitting in a conference room waiting for other members of your team for five minutes is enough to make steam come out of your ears, you could be a type-A worker.As Hakim explains, a punctual worker values deadlines and timelines, and is overly respectful of the companys time (and dime), and needs others to be the same. This type-A professional mindset will help you exceed, but it might also mean you are frequently flustered by what you view as incompetence from your colleagues. Thats why being upfront about your needs is key.Communicate your drive to complete work on time when discussing due dates with your boss. Share that you pride yourself on submitting work product on time and with quality. When you rely on others to get a task done, it can be frustrating if they are not as prompt or punctual as you, she explains. Clearly express the need for work to be submitted on time so that you may complete your portion of the task. If your boss constantly places you in a workgroup with others who are not as prompt, offer to complete the first leg of a larger task so that you are no t impacted by any of their delays.As a way to work seamlessly with your co-workers, managers and employees, Hakim also suggests outsmarting the system. If youd like a meeting to start at 10, consider making it for 950, since youll already be ready to roll and youll give others the space to mosey in from the watercooler.

6 reasons why a two-week vacation could be too long6 reasons why a two-week vacation could be too longIt may be tempted to stack vacation days over two work-weeks, but experts say that may be a bit too long to be away from your office. Sure, travel expenses are high and you want to stay on vacation longer to justify the cost, but worry or concern may set in putting a hamper on your vacation mindset.You worry too much about returningYour mind may wander after a week and wonder whats going on in your absence and what you will encounter when you return, and that can be worrisome. Deborah Sweeney, CEO Owner of MyCorporation, an online legal and business filing service, admits its difficult to take a two-week vacation.One of the biggest reasons not to take a two-week vacation is returning with a ton of stress because there is too much on your plate, she says. Even if you vacation for one full week and the two adjoining weekends, it can be manageable, but two full weeks is just too much a nd the stress begins to accumulate. The vacation becomes less enjoyable and relaxing.It may be challenging to get back to workBeing away from work for two weeks could put you at a disadvantage since youve been out of the loop for a period of time.Because it takes far too long to re-acclimate to your job the longer you are away, there will be a period of adjustment where you are less motivated and coming down from your vacation high, says Roy Cohen, career coach and author of The Wall Street Professionals Survival Guide. Many of my clients claim that a long vacation may be beneficial to a recharge and a reboot but it wreaks havoc on their productivity.Your coworkers may be resentfulSome colleagues may be less than amenable to your leisurely vacation.If you are mid-stream on a project, taking a longer vacation will inevitably dump the heavy lifting on your colleagues, says Cohen. They may already have commitments and it is just not ritterlich to them. And because it is your project, n ot theirs, they may be inclined to push it way down on their priority list.So, if they actually work on it, says Cohen, their diligence will be modest at best.You can be out of the office lessIf you take two weeks at a time, you may end up with a deficit should you need to take time off for an unexpected emergency, a medical matter, or just a day-to-day issue that will need to be addressed and which will take you out of the office. Says Cohen Spending too much time out of the office regardless as to why will soon label you as a lightweight and not a keeper by the company, he adds.Your worth could be impactedIf youre away too long, people may find out they can get along without you, speculates Lois A. Krause, MBA, SPHR, SHRM-SCP, practice leader, HR Compliance with KardasLarson, LLC in Glastonbury, CT.You can look selfish and then may not be needed when you return. It could hurt your chances of moving up the ladder, or even retaining your position, Krause says.Furthermore, you can he ar this feedback from coworkers that can only hamper your vacation mindset.Rumors and anxiety are increased exponentially by distance and time - dont take that chance, adds Krause.Save the long vacation for something truly importantTwo-week vacations, says Krause, should be only taken for special times, such as a wedding and honeymoon, a trip very far away, or a once in a lifetime trip.Otherwise, one week or less is enough to recharge and not leave your responsibilities to flounder, Krause continues. In todays climate, organizations are lean and being away for too long can put undue stress on coworkers, subordinates, and yourself if you end up working harder before you leave and when you get back - it can erase one of the key benefits of a vacation to recharge and come back stronger.
