Yawn...Guest said:I deleted my Facebook in December, glad I did.
As if NYPD wasn't enough
If you could do thatWow thats pretty out there, what about asking for the applicants cellphone to look at the call log, txt messages and pictures taken? It's just the next logical step!
Imagine you tell the interviewer "sure show me yours and I'll show you mine"
Well said!My password would not even give them access to my account. If you actually use facebook's security measures, you can prevent them from gaining access with or without your password. They would also need my cellphone, my cellphone password, and my text message encryption passphrase in order to actually access my facebook account. Good luck with that!
That said, if I were asked to provide my facebook username and password in an interview, I would respond by saying "You are asking me to knowingly and willfully commit a federal crime - I refuse to comply. If any interviewees complied with this request, you and your company could be charged as well for being an accessory to the crime. If this is held against me in any way, my lawyer will become involved."
That, or...BUT...If an interviewer was to ask for something like that....
Play it smart...Say you don't use facebook...They then say why does it show you here...Be like I don't know...must of made one years ago...don't have access to it anymore. Then you can decide if you want to work at a company like that....but if you say no...You just lost the job. Sometimes you have to tell them what they want to hear..I have a friend that says 100% whats on her mind and never bends the truth..And she has a real hard time getting any job and they run all over her...You have to have some jobs smarts to get anywhere now a days.
