How Can I Find Out What Employers Know About Me Before I Go on a Job Interview?

Posted by Writing PIs on June 17, 2010

This question is answered on the June issue of the H.E.L.P. (Handy Education for Legal Professionals) Tip Sheet, geared to legal professionals, private investigators, and others (that includes writers!) with their research :

Each month the H.E.L.P. Tip Sheet contains links to articles, research links, and a few questions answered by PIs.   This month’s contents include articles on tracking people with cell phones and finding someone when you only have a first name; links for navigating the military Internet and searching discussions on the Internet; and answers by PIs to questions about job search background checks and cell phone records.

You can also sign up and get a monthly email when the new H.E.L.P. Tip sheet is available.  Go to and scroll down the page to the subscription box.

Have a good week, Writing PIs
