Blog warning for high achievers

Writing a blog could destroy your career, according to a survey of employers.
Bosses looking to recruit new staff increasingly search the Internet
before interviewing candidates, and take posting on sites like MySpace and YouTube
into consideration. Ever Googled a date?

According to website Viadeo, a quarter of Internet trawls lead to hopeful employees being rejected with bosses singling out posts or photographs of drunken indiscretions as particularly unimpressive.
