Beware Of What You Post To Facebook
With so many people applying for jobs in this economy, employers are turning to new ways to screen through applicants.
For the last couple of years, doing a Google search on your name was a pretty common “background check.”
But now, get ready to turn the Creepy factor up a notch!
We’re all familiar with a credit report, right? Well, Social Intelligence is now offering a “Social Media Report.”
Basically, they search social media sites like Facebook, Linkedin, Flickr, and even private blogs. Then, they put together a report and hold onto it for seven years… Just like a credit report!
And, good luck if anyone else has your name or an ex-husband puts up a fake page!
So, next time you’re out with friends, at a concert, or ticked off at something, you may want to think twice before posting it to the internet if you’re job hunting.
