As the internet continues to grow exponentially, so do its channels, abilities and various other uses. One of these places is called the deep web, a sub-current of information inaccessible through traditional search engines. In recent years, this platform has been used by some for HR purposes, despite its controversial reputation.
Here is some more information regarding the deep web, its HR uses and the controversy surrounding it.
What is the deep web?
If you're an avid internet user, chances are you've heard the deep web referred to in less than positive terms, as many people assume that this portion of the internet is used solely for nefarious means. However, the surface web (sites you can access through search engines) comprises only 10 per cent of the information out there, with the deep web making up the remaining 90. The deep web itself is simply the rest of the internet 'iceberg', so to speak.
