OverviewSuggest Edit

Fama offers employers actionable insight into a candidate's social media background and digital footprint. Think "carfax for hires." Their proprietary tech screens a candidate's digital footprint and quickly surfaces "social media flags" such as references to illegal drugs, profanity, and bigotry – to give employers an accurate assessment of a candidate's risk profile and "character fitness."
