but I will say just a few things here now.
It’s very funny what you can find out about people through the internet. For my job, I needed to gather some bio information, so I went ahuntin’. For some people, I found all kinds of things; photos of their babies, wedding announcements, book publishings, blogs raving against some, lots of good stuff, but not really usable for my purposes. And then there are some people who I know are public figures but have nothing that’s significant at all. Are they not human? Do they not bleed?
And of course I am using a variety of search engines. As much as I hate to admit it, google is still the best. That’s my instinct to go against the herd, but I have to use what works.
I asked people to send in their resumes by tomorrow, and if they didn’t, I would be forced to make something up. Well, this is what I actually sent them:
I want to print out all the materials tomorrow, so I will have to make up your bio if you do not send one in to me by then.
Please remember that I was a kindergarten teacher for over 20 years, so I have an excellent imagination!
And it worked! I got bios within a half-hour for almost all the slackers. That’s pretty successful.
But I’m a little worried that I won’t hear from the ones that I can’t find anything on…
Because I will be posting this and then when someone else wants to find out things about that person, what I write will be the source!
