You’ve been thinking of purchasing a new phone for yourself since a month, but you’re not quite sure if the model you like would be worth the money you’ll be spending on it. So, what do you do? You go and look up for that model online, and check the reviews to correspond its actual performance with what has been stated and marketed by the company, so that you get the worth of your hard-earned money. A detailed review left by someone who has used the product first-hand, will give you a fair idea if that phone model is worth purchasing or not.
The job market is no different either. The digital era has ushered in, and the market is more competitive than it was before. For every job, there are hundreds of eligible candidates that are vying for it, and recruiters are left with hundreds of profiles to choose from. How does the recruiter, then, find out the perfect candidate amongst a sea of applicants? Easy. They go online, and look up for the candidate’s online, professional profile (yes, LinkedIn). They see if the candidate has got any reviews of them online, to check if what they are going for is a viable choice, similar to the phone dilemma mentioned earlier.
