I received the following e-mail today:
I frequently visit your website. I like the articles. Recently I have made an easy tool for HR and people to see what in published on the web. The website is www.cvgadget.com. I would like to ask you, if you like the website, if you could write a small article about it or publish the link on your website.
Many bloggers are familiar with similar kinds of messages. Most get deleted (for good reason). However, on a slow Friday in August at least, this one seemed interesting enough to share.
The site enables you to plug in a name and search results across a variety of popular services – from Google to Facebook to ZoomInfo to LinkedIn and more. If the person you’re searching has a common name, like John Smith, it’s more or less worthless. But say that special someone has a funky name like “Cheesman,” and this tool could give you some insight that you might not have found otherwise (or at least not as easily).
On a sidenote, our friends in legal circles tell us this kind of thing should never be used in conducting, say, background checks on people, so, um, don’t use it for that, OK?
