The Assessment Task In countries around the world, social media tools and social networking sites have revolutionised communication methods, both privately and increasingly, at work. Communication through social media involves the use of an online platform or a social networking site that enables people to communicate, usually for a social purpose, through a variety of services, most of which are web-based and offer opportunities for people to interact over the internet, e.g. via e-mail and ‘instant messaging’. The use of social media as a recruitment tool throws up some opportunities and challenges for employers. Social media potentially offers speed, efficiency and the ability to target and attract specific, particularly apposite candidates in the recruitment process. The assignment task is to write a 2,200-word report based on your investigation and exploration of how social media is currently being used in the recruitment process. You must include at least 10 references from secondary sources on your chosen theme and your argument must be supported by statistical evidences.

Academic Integrity and Misconduct Unless this is a group assessment,the work you produce must be your own, with work taken from any other source properly referenced and attributed. For the avoidance of doubt this means that it is an infringement of academic integrity and, therefore, academic misconduct to ask someone else to carry out all or some of the work for you, whether paid or unpaid, or to use the work of another student whether current or previously submitted. For further guidance on what constitutes plagiarism, contract cheating or collusion, or any other infringement of academic integrity, please read the University’s Academic Integrity and Misconduct Policy.  Also useful resources to help with understanding academic integrity are available from UNPAC . N.B. The penalties for academic misconduct are severe and can include failing the assessment, failing the module and expulsion from the university. Assessment Submission To submit your work, please go to the ‘Submit your work’ area on the NILE site and use the relevant submission point to upload your report. The deadline for this is 11.59pm (UK local time) on the date of submission. Please note that essays and text based reports should be submitted as word documents and not PDFs or Mac files. Written work submitted to TURNITIN will be subject to anti-plagiarism detection software.  Turnitin checks student work for possible textual matches against internet available resources and its own proprietary database. Work When you upload your work correctly to TURNITIN you will receive a receipt which is your record and proof of submission.  If your assessment is not submitted to TURNITIN, rather than a receipt, you will see a green banner at the top of the screen that denotes successful submission. N.B Work emailed directly to your tutor will not be marked. Late submission of work For first sits, if an item of assessment is submitted late and an extension has not been granted, the following will apply: Within one week of the original deadline – work will be marked and returned with full feedback, and awarded a maximum bare pass grade.More than one week from original deadline – grade achievable LG (L indicating late). For resits there are no allowances for work submitted late and it will be treated as a non-submission.
