Interesting. Haven’t thought about. If I was the applicant I don’t know if I would have been so forthcoming with that info. Lol.
In this market, if they were a good fit for the job in all other aspects I’d say sure why not.
I'd think the only time it would effect the position is I'd they were promoting. I'd refer to the companies fraternizing/ social media policy and let them know that there is to be no promoting or adding of residents on social media. I think if they kept it completely separate it wouldn't be a problem.
