Over one third (36%) of Australian employers check their potential candidates’ Facebook profiles before offering them the job, according to a new workplace survey.

    Hello from the Netherlands!
    How will they check the Facebook profile if the hiring managers are not in the candidate network?

    I think they should check their professional profiles like LinkedIn or Xing, because the social life is way different than the professional.
