Chance are your company wouldn’t ever think to ask prospective Finance hires for access to their personal Facebook page. But there are organizations that don’t have any qualms asking for this type of info.
For example, say you decide to apply for a clerical position at a certain North Carolina police department, you’ll be asked the following question: “Do you have any web page accounts such as Facebook, MySpace, etc. … ? If so list your username and password.”
This extreme example raises a number of important questions, including: Is this employer going too far? Will others follow suit? We’d love to hear your thoughts on this.
Readers, what do you think: Is this organization crossing the line in terms of privacy or do you think employers have a right to any info applicants willingly surrender? Let us know in the Comments Section.
