My colleagues and friends, Patti Stirling and Ken Walker, have spoken to numerous audiences about the risks of leaving “digital dirt” lying around on the net. Simply put, employers eliminate job seekers and fire employees when they find their digital dirt, and doing a Google search for your own name won't find all your dirt.
Now DeeAnna Merz Nagel of the American Counseling Association asks, “Is it okay to ‘Google’ your client?” Patti and Ken have told us that Google won’t dredge up all the information about a client but, should you be looking at all? What do you think?
