Facebook Search Graph may help HR find better candidates

HREdward KiledjianComment

Most people know and use LinkedIn, the huge professional networking site recruiters love. Linkedin does a great job telling recruiters what a candidate knows and where they have worked but it doesn't provide any information on "fit" within a company.

This is where the new Facebook Search Graph may provide an additional tool to help recruiters fine tune their candidate search process. Facebook Search Graph will allow the recruiter to ask targeted questions to find connections with people, locations, organization, sports, hobbies and much more. These additional signals will help the modern HR recruiter to ensure the proposed candidates are a good cultural fit with the company.

Facebook Search Graph is slowly rolling out to users across the world so it's coming your way very soon.
