Social Media / Adverse Media Search

Social Media Screening

Pre-Employment Social Media screening is an AI-driven background check service that is based on an applicant’s digital profiles found on platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, and other online public forums. 

Social media screening allows employers the ability to gain a deeper insight into an applicant’s attitude, habits, and behaviors that they would normally learn through a standard background check, driving record, or other traditional background screening methods. When used as part of the recruiting process, this search offers recruiting teams and employers a more complete idea of who the candidate is. Ultimately, helping employers determine if a candidate is a right fit for the organization and their company culture.
