Perhaps that depends on the type of jobs. Technology related recruiter will just simply look at the online resume.

It won't be easy. That's why they're trying to expand Google+!

What type of background would they require ? or what type of courses will they see? Will it be technical or more marketing?

I think of social media as a tool, but not the end in itself, I don't know if someone that knows how to use Twitter really well would help a company if they don't know anything about marketing or customer relationships.

@Anna,

"make sure it is valuable information."

You are right. Reviewers will not waste their valuable time going through long and boring online resumes, for instance. There are even specialized software that do a pre-review, based on specific keywords and phrases.

Google would like to be able to get access to the social media data, but I don't think that the information will be let "open" for any search engine to grab it.

@t.alex,

Will we still have paper resumes or we will  just have to point potential recruiters to our online profiles? Maybe both?

I do not think that having your profile on LinkedIn or such social media is counterproductive as far your current job is concerned.

In this social media age this has become an important feature of every professional that he has his professional profile on a site such as LinkedIn and his personal profile ona site such as FB.

If one is working for a professional company then the presence of such profile would not hinder youe career but if your boss is not a professional then it could be problem.

 

As far data extraction from the social media sites is concerned I would recommend that Google should come out with a Social media specific  search engine to help in this matter

Yep I have seen some people start doing that. Some others hold back and do not put anything on their Linkedin profile. They are not comfortable with the idea that the current bosses would see their profile and would assume that they are looking for job elsewhere.

What this means is that the person generating and transmitting the information also needs to consider what it will take the reviewer to evaluate the data. If it is added make sure it's easy to digest and make sure it is valuable information.

t.alex, I believe many people already include social media profiles and contact information on their resumes, in addition to web pages and other information. You want to let the recruiter know you are up to date with tools used by professionals.
