Think About It!

This one is purely an observation and I wanted to share my thoughts….

Data Protection….please, please, please protect it, or at least give yourself a fighting chance.

This piece is predominantly aimed at those in the market for a new role and are contacting recruiters, job boards and anyone else that smells vaguely familiar!

Today I received the following information from a candidate that I have never met, spoken to, or indeed heard of, let me know your thoughts on the following;

  • Full Name
  • Date of Birth
  • Full UK Address
  • Mobile Telephone No
  • Home Telephone No
  • National Insurance No
  • Membership No (Chartered Institution)
  • Full list of interests & hobbies

I fully appreciate there is often a need for efficiency and in particular the ease for us in an industry to be able to contact people quickly and effectively…however, please give a thought as to how much information you are sharing with people and organisations you do not know.
