And are those student jobs?

Student in the sense that I can only be full-time in the summer due to university but it's not uncommon to work alongside someone who is in their 30s, 40s, 50s... why should employment not be considered seriously at the age of 20?  I will most likely be using these employers as references when I graduate and figure out what I want to do.

Am not trying to be obtuse, Julia. The main focus was FB and what it reveals.  It's crazy to think potential employers can't access your account and they don't make judgements based on that.  Trying to give you a heads up, that's all...

If they do it without your permission, you can take action. You have a right to privacy and that extends to who you decide gets to see your Facebook page.

Have you ever had a FB profile?

No, they can't hack the system. 

What they can do is search for you like any other Facebook user (which you can disable if you wish) and view your public profile. Most people have set their public profile to show a thumbnail of their profile picture and their name. They have no way of seeing your comments, other photos, other information unless you deem it public, show them yourself or you accept them as a friend. It's very simple.

Exactly. And if they do hack your profile, they have broken the law.

No, but I know it's possible for employers to see - be it hacking, or otherwise.  If it is hacking, I don't agree with it, but it is done, and what you choose to reveal is there for all to see.

I don't think that's actually possible or ever been done. It would certainly be the worst kind of publicity for a company.

As I said, it's all up to the individual to figure out what kind of privacy they need.

Then you can take legal action. An employer cannot access your details without opening themselves up to legal action, unless you give them access.

It's something 'we' have been doing, only in reverse but it also showed me what people can see about me now and that's hopefully just a picture of a box of chocolates and nothing else.  You have to be very careful what you say on the internet - it's a public place and can be used against you.  That's why I don't b*tch about work on here innocent

Fair enough, so the investors don't feel there is that much upside from the current valuation. Sounds like a sensible move, nothing of concern really.
