Dice Collects Job Candidates’ Social Media Trail

DiceDice just launched a new tool that collects the social media trail of job candidates. The NY-based tech jobs site finds information from more than 50 social sites including Facebook, LinkedIn, Stack Overflow and GitHub. It also grabs links and personal email addresses. Scot Melland, CEO of Dice Holdings Inc. said the information is all publicly available—but difficult to access. He told Crain’s New York Business, “We’re basically taking activities recruiters do today and making it very easy for them.”
