Today, I googled myself in preparation for my upcoming job interview. Turns out there's a girl on Twitter with my name and age who tweets nonstop about getting wasted and being on probation. She won't make her profile private. FML

Firstly, good job googling yourself and finding the issue before you went to the interview. You weren't cought by surprise.
Flat out tell them. Make. Sure you're the one to bring it up. If they do, all is lost. Everything after that point is an excuse.

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.

I've googled myself before and it pretty much just had my G+ and Facebook and whatever else I use. My last name is a little weird and when I look up my last name it only has my relatives. We may be the only ones with the last name.

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.

I'm really wondering why John Smith is still a common name.. you'd think the cliche of it would stop parents doing that to their children by now..

If OP keeps tweeting about "boring work" wouldn't potential employers see that as a negative, that it's tedious and OP is only feigning interest? Isn't that counterproductive to what OP actually wants to achieve?

Yeah but you could always adopt a middle initial or officially add a middle initial if you'd like to. Several American presidents did that because they wanted their names to look more dignified/sound more pleasant ;)
