    people putting damaging info about themselves on their facebook account don't know what " foresight " means
    i've heard CAS ( Childrens Aid Society ) uses info from facebook posts to take away kids from parents

    Lexis Nexis? If they screened out all the triggering factors for employment who would be employable? Dummies who don't go online or cave dwellers? Toxic workers who are sue happy or irresponsible should be the main concern.

    I've never understood why anyone would post online under their real name.

    We vet interdepartmental staff for hirings and told that our opinions and observation of their history are immaterial when a job comes up. We are told take them or take no one. So it has come to a point that we don't vet and settle. Pretty sad and demoralizing to be honest.

    Maybe the hiring prospect could be
    improved bi describing oneself as easy.

    BTW, the owner of Macebook is a confirmed Socshevik.

    Does that mean you can make a facebook account and then make posts to boost yourself up. Like the day of the interview you make a public post saying, "I am going in for my interview at company X. I really love their products and I have a great respect for their company. It has been my dream to work for a company like them for years, and now is my chance! Everyone wish me luck!"

    That sounds like a good idea if it doesn't sound phony. I would be tempted to write something like, "I really hope they make me an offer I can accept. It would be a shame if I had to go somewhere else just because of money."
