Facebook资料可预测职场表现

  美国东北伊利诺伊大学、伊凡斯维尔大学和奥本大学的最新研究发现,未来雇主可借助Facebook资料预测求职者的职场表现。在试验中,三位评估者(一位大学教授、两个学生)对56个大学生的Facebook资料及其工作进行了调查。评估者将对包括照片、帖子、评论、教育和爱好在内的用户资料进行10分钟的精读,然后回答一系列与个性有关的问题,比如“此人可靠吗?”、“情绪稳定吗?”。6个月后,研究人员将上述试验结果与主管对学生的员工评价进行了对比,他们发现学生的工作表现与Facebook资料的评估十分吻合,比如责任感、求知欲等。评估者给予那些旅行经验丰富、拥有更多朋友和兴趣爱好的学生更高评价。聚会照片并不一定不利于学生,相反,评估者将认为此学生更加外向、更加友好。

  If you're in the market for a new job, you should already be aware that future employers are perusing your Facebook profile. Some employers are even demanding applicants supply their Facebook passwords. But does that kind of information really help human resources determine whether or not you're job worthy? According to a new study from Northeastern Illinois University, the University of Evansville and Auburn University, the answer is a resounding yes。

  The study involved a group of three raters — one university professor and two students — who were tasked at looking through the Facebook profiles of 56 students with jobs. Using just the information in their profiles, including pictures and comments, the raters gave each of the 56 students scores in areas such as friendliness and intellectual curiosity。

  Based on the profiles, it was found that there was a strong correlation between an employee's job success and certain traits such as conscientiousness and agreeability. Specifically, those with the most friends were seen most favorably, as were those who traveled and had a wide array of interests。

  Surprisingly, those who posted pictures of themselves partying were actually seen in an overall favorable light — it showed they were more extroverted. Still, if your Facebook profile is filled with pictures of you doing keg stands, you might want spend a few minutes adjusting your profile's privacy settings before submitting that next job application. Especially since photos deleted off Facebook were found to be viewable for up to 3 years afterward。
