Net Work: Employers, candidates move from traditional resumes to online profiles
By Sam Boykin CHARLOTTE — When Larry Dukes needed to fill a key position at his IT consulting firm, his search began and ended on LinkedIn, the business-oriented social networking site launched in 2003. To find the right employee for his company, SPRYTek, Dukes simply typed in job parameters and necessary skills, and he soon had a short list of candidates to choose from. Among them was the ideal person. “It’s just a matter of connecting the right dots,” Dukes said. Just as social networking sites have changed the way people communicate, it is also changing the way companies recruit employees. Dukes has about 15 employees, and he found almost half of them though social media like LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter.
