1000 Resumes, One Job – Video 9: Social Networking and Email

The internet has made the world a very small place.
Go to Google, Yahoo or Bing, type in your full name and see what comes up.
When search for myself, there are links to posts that I made all the way back in the early 90s, there are links to my MySpace page that I haven’t used in several years, links to Facebook, LinkedIn, businesses that I own or owned, businesses that I have managed or worked for. Frankly, it’s frightening.
Your on-line life and internet history is right there for people to see.
Interviewers and prospective employers can and will see a lot of your history in a matter on minutes.
They can learn how you talk, act, think, who you associate with and whether the information on your resume matches your internet history.
