BELLEVUE

A Bellevue teenager is a fan of marijuana. This is clear from her MySpace.com page.

Punching in the girl's basic information into a Google search brings up her MySpace page. A potential employer could find her with a few clicks of the computer mouse.

John Clark, career services coordinator for BGSU Firelands, said he hasn't heard of area businesses using social networking Web sites as screening tools in job searches.

But that doesn't mean no one's doing it.

"Is there anything you would not want an employer to find out during an interview? If there is, don't put it on your site," Clark said. "It's been a rule of thumb any communication with an employer is a professional interview. Well now, posting any communication anywhere public is also a professional interview. I know that's a little intimidating, but it's a fact of life. It's all out there and it's all accessible."
