You nailed the interview but those darn binge drinking photos on Myspace.

The Boston Globe has an interesting article about employers searching blogs and social networking sites for information on job applicants. It seems this has become an increasing practice. I list my blog on my resume and emphasized it on my grad school application. I would not however point someone to my Myspace profile, simply because it is silly not incriminating. It is funny to think of a human resources manager scrolling through Facebook and Myspace to see what an applicant is really like.
