    “One In Five Employers Scan Applicants’ Web Lives”

    Spotted on SlashDot:

    “CareerBuilder’s new survey finds: ‘Of those hiring managers who have screened job candidates via social networking profiles, one-third (34 percent) reported they found content that caused them to dismiss the candidate from consideration.’ Some red flags: content about applicant using drugs or drinking, inappropriate photos and bad-mouthing former bosses.”

    That is why I am on the web as “Purpleslog” and not under my real name.

    I have worked with enough leftists that I know that if they could have googled me and if they had found my anti-leftists beliefs, I would not have been hired for the non-political Information technology positions I applied for.

    I consider it a personal information security control on my part.
