References Available Via Google

from the watch-out dept

An interesting discussion based on the famous line found on just about every resume: "references available on request". Is this an outdated idea when your "references" may be everywhere online? As the article points out, many people have quite a history of themselves online - and anyone can do a "reference check" on them with a simple search. While some are scared of this un-erasable past (or, as some may say, your "permanent record"), it's pretty much a fact of life for most of us. If that's the case, shouldn't you embrace it, and try to make the best of it?
