In the age of internet, it’s reasonable to wonder what kind of information others can dig up about your background. And not just talking about old, racist tweets, bizarre postings on Facebook as well. Truth is, we live in a time when even some of our most sensitive information is readily available to the public, often at the click of a mouse. And if you’ve ever applied for a job, changed insurance companies, gotten a new utility provider, applied for a new apartment, found a new boyfriend or girlfriend then chances are someone has checked your background.
