Librarian: I'm So NOT Wii Fit Girl

Kotaku writes: "Those naughty librarian eyeglasses might say say yes-yes, but a New York City woman says, no-no, they're not hers. You see, there's Lauren Bernat, aka Wii Fit Girl, who hulaed her way to 2 million YouTube views about three weeks ago, and then vowed it was not a viral marketing scheme. And then there's Lauren Bernat, mild-mannered librarian, who's been deluged with Facebook requests from cretinous pic collectors admirers who'd like to better know Wii Fit Girl. Non-Wii Fit Lauren wants everyone to know she's trying to get a job, and the attention isn't good for that.

Librarian Lauren says she does resemble Wii Fit Girl Lauren, enough that an employer who Googles her might have second thoughts about her temperament for a serious job. "If someone has my business card, and doesn't know what I look like, and they Google me, it looks like it's me, and that's my whole career down the tubes," she said."

The story is too old to be commented.

your name was Sam Norman, every interview you went to would be prefaced with this:

Employers check sites like Facebook and if they see something they don't like well then you're a$$ is fired, or they won't even hire you.

...swimming in choppy waters.

I think many employers need to distinguish between their employees business and personal lives.

The truth that you mention scares me.
