What is a Shadow Resume?

You say you’ve been having fun posting here and there online? Did you comment on some articles? How about tweeting or engaging in other social media online? You are probably aware that some employers are performing credit checks as well as background checks. Did you know that employers surf the internet to see if you’ve been posting to blogs, viewing your Facebook and other activity. So now you have it, all this online or digitally available activity is your shadow resume. You might think there’s nothing online that would incriminate you negatively; after all you’re just a fun-loving, every day Jill or Joe from down the street. Read today’s article and carefully evaluate your digital trail just to determine you haven’t overlooked a minor detail that could eliminate you from getting that great job you’ve been hoping for. You might be surprised about some facets of your life you haven’t considered as needing to be kept private.
