what is privacy


There was a discussion on slashdot about “social networks” and privacy. Some people pointed out that old taboo of putting too much “personal” information online that can harm your chances of landing a job. Although I do acknowledge the veracity of that statement, I feel that in my case, I rather my employer knows everything about me before they hire me. I feel that complete honestly would foster a healthy work environment and an enduring partnership. I feel that whenever I “submit” a resume, I have demoted myself to being an employee. But if an employer can see me for who I am and what I can bring to the table, there is a better chance that I can be a “partner” in success rather than just a worker bee.
