Safeguarding Your Financial Information and Identity
Hiring Minds Want to Know
Your resume and job application provides a wealth of information about you but so does a Google search. Many employers search the Internet for information about prospective employees, verifying employment histories, where you've lived, what experiences you have had, as well as to get a sense of who you are beyond what appears on your resume. If you don't want prospective or current employers to have access to personal or private information, set your social media accounts to "private" status, or better yet resist the temptation to share your "life" online. Think of it this way: If you aren't willing to share something with everyone online, don't share it online at all.
