Help wanted

June 19th, 2009

The City of Bozeman, Montana apparently wants to know everything there is to know about job applicants:

[A waiver statement applicants must sign gives…] the City permission to conduct an investigation into the person's "background, references, character, past employment, education, credit history, criminal or police records."

"Please list any and all, current personal or business websites, web pages or memberships on any Internet-based chat rooms, social clubs or forums, to include, but not limited to: Facebook, Google, Yahoo,, MySpace, etc.," the City form states. There are then three lines where applicants can list the Web sites, their user names and log-in information and their passwords.
[Emphasis added]

Could it be that this is actually a cunning plan to identify potential employees who are too gullible to let within a mile of the city's computer systems?
