Stalking for dummies

I’ve turned into a bit of an internet stalker lately, ever since researching this “where are they now?” piece for Insurance Times. It’s extraordinary what even a half-hearted Google search can throw up about the most ordinary people. So, for this Inside Housing careers feature, I was fascinated to discover how recruiters use the internet to check up on potential employees, and how people with a less-than-professional online presence can wipe it squeaky clean. It seemed to hit a nerve in the housing sector anyway – the story was one of the most read articles on the website for weeks afterwards.
