While the significance and use of the Internet are important human resource management topics, the previously outlined broad discussion is presented as a backdrop to the main points to be covered in the current paper. The major thrust of this paper is to assess the impact of a potential employee’s social media image by employers on his/her hiring potential. The paper begins with a review of the current literature on the topic, ending with certain pertinent and related research study questions. This latter portion is preceded by a research design, a results section, and a conclusion section. Implications of the current findings, including the importance for future research, are also discussed.
