Any employer that's dumb enough to think there's only one person in the world with your name is an employer you don't want to work for anyway.
Really, #69? Because some people's phones put "get" instead of "her." See how 'g' is close to 'h' and 't' is close to 'r'? That's really not something that is hard to figure out. And by the way, people post "it's trying to communicate" all the time when someone makes a mistake. If you're going to keep repeating the phrase, please save it for comments that actually deserve it.
I'm the only person who shows up if I Google myself. My Facebook doesn't show up ( I use another name there, and employers don't need to see it! ), and my Twitter doesn't either ( not that I tweet anyway ). There's just a bunch of those stupid profile places that somehow get your city of residence and age, and then they want you to pay a bunch of money to get rid of it from their site. Some of those don't even have the right age, but whatever. I'm fairly certain that I'm the -only- person in the U.S. with my name, even discounting my middle name. It's entirely possible for someone to have a normal name and be the only one.
As long as you don't look like her or have the same email you'll be fine.
Considering that most potential employers look a bit further than a name, I'd think you are fine. Otherwise, it would suck for all the John Smiths out there.
keep tweeting about boring work related stuff on your profile till all her waster friends abandon her
Ah the worst kind of identity theft. Well, not really but still sorta unfortunate. Maybe incorporate your middle name into your social network and resume.
