Student Name:Bruce ThompsonCase Study Number from Textbook:39Student overview of case study: This case describes the use of social media in staffing and selection processes. Karen Johnston, a director for a health-planning agency, serves as chairperson on a Community Advisory Board for a Healthcare MBA program. Johnston was asked to select a student for an upcoming internship. After receiving resumes, Johnston wanted to alter her strategy by observing each candidate’s social media accounts to assist with her decision-making. Johnston found two of the three candidates’ social profile suitable for the internship and eliminated the third candidate based on the behavior exhibited on the account. Johnston believed the third applicant should have never been allowed in the master program due to her unprofessional behavior. The major issues include: recruiting and selection strategies, specifically, the use of social media to make hiring decisions.
