Abstract

The Human Resources department as we know now is not the same as the one the one that existed twenty years ago. Today, an organization’s Human Resources department focuses on hiring candidates that are skilled and able to adapt to the organization’s unique culture and values. Twenty years ago, the Human Resources department focused on compliance and legalities alone (Ohio University, n.d.). With a shift from processes and procedures to the employees and culture of the organization, it becomes clear why professional social networking websites such as LinkedIn and Indeed.com are becoming popular forms of applying for jobs and for the recruitment and selection processes. Advantages such as a large pool of possibilities and a lack of restriction on the location of the opportunity truly make professional networking websites appealing. However, are these professional social networking websites sufficient in aiding applicants, specifically, undergraduate students in finding internships and full-time job opportunities? Should the use of these websites be strongly encouraged?
