“The Man” Is Snooping Through Facebook

Daily Bruin: Employers are beginning to use sites such as Facebook to access personal information of candidates for employment, said Kathy Sims, director of the UCLA Career Center.
And not all employers are pleased with what they find.
Sims said there have been several cases of employers rescinding job offers to student candidates because of information obtained through Facebook.
She said employers will find content they determine to be less than professional or inappropriate, and many students do not realize the consequences.
Sims said many alumni who work at companies can use school e-mails to access Facebook, since the site requires members to have a school e-mail account from the specified school.
At UCLA, all alumni are guaranteed their e-mail addresses for life.
