If you are preparing to go on a job interview or attend our Career Fair, you might want to re-read the blog post titled "Have You Google'd Yourself Lately."
Please post your comments and thoughts on this ongoing topic affecting job seekers. If you are an employer and utilize this practice, please share what you are looking to find/not find on your search. I'm looking forward to hearing your responses.
Until then, happy hunting and recruiting Orlando!
