Another interesting tidbit: [the social media background check] only uses the data an employer gives it to run a search. …And that means you should be smart about what kinds of contact information you put on your resume. Your personal email address, especially if you’ve had it for a long time, could have all kinds of things tied to it that you’d rather an employer not see. Spend the nothing it costs to set up a dedicated job search email account, and list that one on your c.v.
Really fascinating and some good tips. I try to be smart but I’m probably doomed anyway.
