Do hiring managers tend to check job applicants' social media accounts before making a hiring decision?

Fully 62% say they always do, and 29% say they sometimes do, according to a recent survey of 233 hiring managers conducted by Skynova.

Why do hiring managers check? Most say they do so to get more detail on an applicant's professional background (57% cite that as a reason) and to get a sense of their personality (54%).

An infographic (below) explores those insights and additional findings from the survey.
