@ckelly1 You're right that it says just "Google," but given the context, which aligns it with LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook, one can infer that they mean the social media profile and not a peek into every search you do.

Ariella. I guess I am confused when they state "know who you are on google"..that could mean everything..and that is how they phrase it..no mention of Google+ only.

@ckelly1 By signing in with your Google ID, you're not transfering the data on all your Google searches but on your connections and posts on Google+.  Path.to says that information gives it better insight into job applicants for better job matches. It's not supposed to give all that information to the employer. But you should always be aware that whatever you do on FB, Twitter, or Google+ may become public knowledge even if you only share on a limited basis.

Ariella.  Sorry I missed that, I don't recall every have been asked to give permission to see what I do on google.  It may not be published, but if I am looking for a job, the last thing I want is for a potential employer to Possibly know what I "google".  I also don't want any organization having access to my contacts.  They way they phrase it is very vague and gives them alot of latitude.

@ckelly1 Yes, I mentioned that. They want to see your contacts, as well as your posts to get more data on your interests. I don't believe they would post anything under a person's name; that's the usual notification for agreeing to sign in with an established profile.

Looks like an interesting site..but I just want to make people aware that not only do they request information on your job history from you, but if they can they want you to sign in with your credentials from other Social Media Sites.  When I tried to log in wiith my Google account..they wanted permission to Manage your contacts, View and manage your Google Contacts,Know who you are on Google, Perform these operations when I'm not using the application.

@Daniel, sure you can upload a fake resume with skill sets you don't possess. You can do that for any job. But it really would be pointless to obtain an interview for a job you cannot do. You'd just be wasting your own time, as well as that of the interviewer.

@Seth Path.to embraces the association of its site with online dating. As you point out, though, we know (and have the  report --http://www.psychologicalscience.org/pdf/PSPI-online_dating-proof.pdf -- that shows)  dating sites do not necessarily hold up to scientific rigor.  Still I think it iwould actually be easier to match people with jobs than with mates because the facts there are more easily quantifiable -- level of pay, benefit, policies, record for promotion, vacation time, level of formality, management style, openness to ideas, even the way the work space is laid out can all be ascertained in advance to know if that is the type of place you'd be comfortable at.  And while people do have more to them than the sum of their data, Path.to does seem to acknowledge that, which is why they feel they can learn more about you over time with access to social media profiles.

Louis, I don't know how they are checking but it's true. Now most of the companies have global clients and has to handle very sensitive datas. Suppose if the client is a financial company, the employee has to handle customers account details, credit card information's etc. So the companies has to make sure about employees back ground, behavior etc before recruiting for such post. But best part is, then also lots of such fraudulent things are happening.

Ariella, am not getting how it's possible. The user can put all the fake things both in data fields and resume.  The analysis is going to happen based on these input validated datas and not on actual facts. So the best out of the fake can be the outputs. I mean a crooked fellow can cheat the tool/software in a cunning way. The only possible way is it can help whether the inputs are adhere to certain pre determined combinations like embedded ASIC/FPGA developer has to use  IC platforms rather than C/C++ compilers.
