Yeah, I know you are out or on your way out of school. But tuck this into your Internet safety teachable moment files: SURVEY: JOB SEEKERS REJECTED DUE TO ONLINE INFORMATION Seventy percent of hiring managers say they’ve decided not to hire an applicant because of information they have found online, according to a survey commissioned by Microsoft of 1,200 human relations managers and consumers. While most of those surveyed stated they research candidates online and think they are justified in doing so, only seven percent of consumers believed that recruiters check out potential candidates online when making hiring decisions. Over one-half of managers surveyed agreed that data on lifestyle, inappropriate written text and inappropriate photos were types of information that could result in rejecting a candidate. An overview of the findings from the survey can be accessed at http://www.microsoft.com/ privacy/dpd/research.aspx. Nancy -- Nancy Willard, M.S., J.D.
