Lessons to Learn in College

by Stephanie Michele (writer), Venice, May 29, 2007


The following paragraph is posted on the University of Southern California’s website:

“Special note to Employers: Recently the National Association of Colleges and Employers reported that a significant percentage of employers are using social networking sites such as Facebook and MySpace to screen potential candidates. The USC Career Planning & Placement Center strongly discourages this process. As an employer participating in on-campus events, we expect you will provide a clear explanation of your selection process to potential candidates. If you consider the content of a Facebook or MySpace profile in evaluating a potential employee, we request that you state this in your job description for any on-campus recruiting events.”

Seriously? Maybe a better policy would be to teach the students that it is probably not a good idea to post things on public websites that they don’t want to be PUBLIC!!!
