After reading the required materials on social media found on the Background page for this module and your own library research, prepare a 4- to 5-page paper addressing the following:

Discuss the influence social media has (or could have) on HRM success.

What are the challenges of HRM professionals using social media to learn about current and potential employees?

The Wright article talks about how Facebook recruits. Bring in three other real-life, private sector employers (by name from your readings/research) and discuss their approaches to social media in the HRM context.
Use at least 5 sources from the Trident library.

Demonstrate critical thinking and analysis of the relevant issues and HRM actions, drawing on your background reading and research.

Information Literacy: Evaluate resources and select only library/Web-based resources that provide reliable, substantiated information.

Give authors credit for their work. Cite sources of borrowed information in the body of your text as footnotes or numbered end notes, or use APA style of referencing.

Prepare a paper that is professionally presented (including a cover page, a list of references, headings/subheadings, and a strong introduction and conclusion). Proofread carefully for grammar, spelling, and word-usage errors.
