I just googled my own name for fun and found nothing. I don't do a lot of the facebook stuff and the twittering and the MTV X-boxes of whatever it is the kids are doing now but I did find a lot of obituaries for people that shared my name. That's kind of weird =/[name] isn't even one of my references. That interviewer likely would have just said, a "Hey, I have this candidate who you know. What can you tell me about this person?" It could be an email, phone call, or chance encounter at a conference or something.
I have never been asked to provide contact information for previous supervisors or managers.
I assume they are? No one has ever asked for a list of my references. In any case, my references are people I have worked with and will give out positive honest information about my experience and abilities.
I have no presence on social media. No FB, Twitter, etc. I do have a LinkedIn profile but it's set to private. There are lots of people who have the same name as me. A Google search turns up plenty of doctors and artists and others who have the same name as me, including middle initial.
No. It's a brand new start up so all the staff are still being hired.
I have googled the names of potential employees to make sure I wasn't dealing with a murderer, mugger, rapist, serial killer or someone who likes being arrested 3 times a month.
