Frederick, Maryland (PRWEB) February 07, 2015
According to a 2014 Jobvite social recruiting survey, 93% of recruiters look to social networks such as Facebook for candidates to fill job openings. 55% of these recruiters admitted to reconsidering individuals based purely on the content they posted online. Other recent surveys have found that more than 40% of employers are inspecting the social media profiles of potential hires, and about half are finding content to make them think twice about their choice of hire. With this in mind, iHire became the first job board to partner with Rep’nUp, a growing internet company that uses state-of-the-art technology to help users improve their social media reputations.
“We are thrilled to partner with iHire and expand the reach of social media reputation management services available to their audiences,” said Lior Tal, Co-Founder of Rep’nUp. “Rep’nUp and iHire share similar missions and the same commitment to helping job candidates land great jobs. We look forward to a long-lasting and successful partnership, utilizing the best of both platforms to help career-minded individuals find perfect job opportunities.”
A free social profile scan from Rep’nUp is available for both basic and premium members of iHire and can be accessed from the user’s dashboard by clicking on “Reputation Management” near the top of the page. From there, individuals only need to login through their Facebook account to get the process started.
Rep’nUp’s own statistics have found that 70% of their users have at least five negative items on their profiles, which can include sexual or violent content as well as pictures of drinking and partying. Rep’nUp supplies a way to quickly remove this potentially offensive or embarrassing content. iHire’s Manager of Candidate Offerings, Lori Bryan, believes the addition of reputation management services to iHire’s growing list of job seeker resources could be a key differentiator. “Facebook reputation management is so important for job seekers,” Bryan said, “and many don’t realize just how much information is available for potential employers to view. Rep’nUp is the best tool we have found to accomplish this task, and we are thrilled to offer this service to our job seekers.”
Rep’nUp, a proprietary social media reputation management platform, helps job seekers clean up Facebook by reviewing the content published on their social media profiles and providing reports on negative posts, likes, and photos, empowering its subscribers to efficiently remove problematic or potentially embarrassing information that would otherwise be viewable by recruiters and prospective employers. Repn’Up is led by an experienced team, world leading researchers, and a top tier investor – JVP. Visit http://www.repnup.com for more information.
