Poll: Give Your Facebook Password to Your Potential Employer?


Facebook PasswordYes! You FINALLY got an interview.

Once you get there, it goes great: You enthusiastically rattled off all of your¬†achievements, work experience, and fresh ideas for the company; you even take a few minutes to discuss last night’s football game. Nailed it!

But after flawlessly answering the “Tell me about yourself,” “What are you biggest weaknesses?” and “If you were a fruit, what fruit would you be?” questions,¬†you’re asked one question you were not expecting to answer: “Can we have the password to your Facebook account?”

You weren’t prepared for this! You sit there conflicted, mentally kicking yourself for not clicking the “untag” button on all of those photos from Mardi Gras.

What if you say no? Will they take you out of the running? What if you’re overacting about what’s on your Facebook and it’s really fine?

What would you do? Has this happened to you?

Please take our poll and tell us what you think in the comment section!
