The CheckSocial story

Over 70% of recruiters conduct social media checks on candidates. Most of these checks were being completed manually, taking anywhere from 45 minutes to several hours.

The majority of this time is spent on conducting searches on search engines and social media sites, trying to get a picture of how the candidate portrayed themselves online.

So, we had an idea.

We could build a platform that could automate all of this search and analysis effort and provide people who needed to conduct background checks with a simple, concise, accurate report that highlighted any red flags and gave a snapshot of the candidate’s digital reputation.

We believe that social media checks should be part of every hiring decision.

Our roots

CheckSocial is a service developed by WorldStack. The service is built on a platform called Providence.

Providence was created to automate the collection and analysis of public data from the web in order to discover insights that can be used to support decision making.
