&quot;Because we tend to view our personal social media accounts as being &apos;personal,&apos; there&apos;s a good chance that by viewing someone&apos;s profile, you&apos;ll get a glimpse into their personality beyond the resume,&quot; said DeeAnn Sims, founder of SPBX. About half of employers – 47 percent – said they wouldn&apos;t call a person for an interview if they can&apos;t find them online. More than a quarter of employers say it&apos;s because they like to gather more information before calling a candidate, and 20 percent say it&apos;s because they expect candidates for have an online presence. &quot;Whether it&apos;s intentional or not, this [not having a profile] always feels like you have something to hide,&quot; said Sims. &quot;Either you&apos;ve specifically taken steps to make sure you can&apos;t be found, or you&apos;re using a childish byname – neither of which feels very professional.&quot;
