According to “Could Snapchat Hurt Your Career?" “Here at Vault, we've spent a lot of time talking about Snapchat recently, as we planned the launch of our own account. And, because we're always thinking about careers, one of the issues that came up was whether employers can, or should, be checking out a candidate's account as part of the hiring process.” Many Jobs have thought about using snapchat as a hiring idea, but are worried that if they use it will distract employees. Many jobs have left it in the hands of the employees to decide if I would be a good idea to use snapchat as a hiring process. If using snapchat to hire people it has its advantages and disadvantages. One advantage is if you were to add the person you were thinking of hiring and they didn't add you back or blocked you, then you know they're hiding something. A disadvantage is that some people separate their work life from their home life, so using snapchat then would just be ruining people's privacy of their home life and them possibly not getting a job.
