An interesting senario and one that is becoming more and more relevant in todays time. If I were in the situation of the employer in the case study I would call the candidate directly and discuss my concerns giving her a chance to defend her position before submitting my report. I would not dismiss the candidate just on my google findings. Ultimately I would have to make a discission that would be right for the company's culture.


I wonder, too, about an alternative scenario: The company hiring the person, and later Googling that her to discover her 'reputation.'
