I will show you mine, if you show me yours ….

I really do think a potential employer asking for access to your Facebook account is a bit of an “ambush” tactic.

What I say and do on my Facebook page, has got nothing to do with what I do at work, and visa versa, but I like this cartoon.

    When I was looking for someone to stand in for me when I was on maternity leave, I checked out the shortlisted candidates on facebook. One of the more suitable ones had a very scary looking profile picture – lots of tatts and piercing. I sent her an email to ask if she was really suitable and she sent me a diplomatic reply saying that she kept her personal life very separate and removed her various piercing for the office etc. I was very impressed with how she handled it and she ended up getting the job. She later told me how angry she was when she received my email. A lesson in facebook privacy as apparently lots of HR managers do facebook searches.

  2. Awesome. I shall keep that in mind, should the need arise – I’ll use it!
