To thoroughly review a candidate’s social media history on your own, it takes hours of manual effort and typically you will only be able to review a fraction of their total posts. In addition, for those firms doing it themselves, it is mostly a subjective review.  We take a comprehensive approach by going back 5 years and take the subjectivity out of the equation by measuring the aggregate risk associated with all of the posts including images.

Highly Efficient

By not considering your candidate’s social media history in your hiring process, you are introducing tremendous risk to your organization, your brand, your customers and potentially your revenue and profits.  And to ensure a cultural fit to your organization, there is no better way to make this determination than to review your candidate’s public comments. Ferretly allows you to vet your candidate's social media history easily while maintaining their privacy.

Reduced Risk

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) recently ruled that it is perfectly legal for employers to scan an applicant’s social history for publicly posted content as part of a job application as well as other valid uses as dictated by the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). And by outsourcing social media scans, you can avoid the legal pitfalls of seeing possible protected class information such as candidate's age, gender, religion, disabilities or race governed by EEOC.
