Here is another un-noticed bit of fallout from Facebook, Linkedin and MySpace - IDENTITY THEFT.
I had my personal info there in effort to use every tool to find a job, however by exposing yourself like this you've given people all of your past history, areas you've lived, where you went to school etc. This made it very easy for ID theft, I have since pulled all of my info from these sites and have mentioned to friends and family.
p.s. to all you HR recruiters, try to take a day and look at resumes (seriously) of those people whom have been out of work and based upon their past experience have alot of potential...just because they aren't specifically from X industry doesn't mean they can't become one of your best - plus, if you have someone whom needs a job and someone that already has a job...why do focus on the one whom already has a position - do something for the economy and give people a shot! Remember, one day this could be you on the other side.
