Is Your Online Profile Keeping You Unemployed?

from the too-late-now,-sucker dept

People always talk about ego surfing, and the sites they find. However, how would you feel if your potential employer did an internet search on you? Most companies say they wouldn’t do such a thing (and some even think it may be illegal). However, some are – and you might need to be worried about what they find. The problem is that the dirty joke you posted 5 years ago to some mailing list may not reflect too kindly on you. How long until we seen “internet cleaners” who will scrub your dirty history right off the web?
