We’ve all digitally stalked hiring managers before: followed them on Twitter, sent a Facebook friend request, liked their Instagram photos, Highlighted them, sent an InMail. But, does it actually work, and how do hiring managers perceive this? There is also that awkward moment when you have a digital-turned-#IRL run-in with a hiring manager you’ve been creeping on. Should you introduce yourself as your alter ego, tinyrobots512, or pretend you don’t know them, or should you spew out all of their recent tweets to prove your interest? What is appropriate, and do they even care about tinyrobots512? We’ll discuss how to build an irresistible digital persona – one that transcends digital relationships into jobs and new hires #IRL. Additionally, we will provide tips on how to stalk yourself and co-workers to glean insight on job satisfaction, predict turnover, and determine if the potential job or new hire is a good match.
