Today’s job market, like most of the rest of our lives, has been taken over by the internet. Applications have moved online; interviews are conducted over Skype, and over 3.7 million employees spend at least half their time working from home. Most companies use the internet to research potential new hires before the interview.
About 60 percent of employers perform a web search on applicants before the interview. If you are looking for an IT position, the chances of your interviewer Googling you shoot up to 76 percent.
