A student I had emailed me to ask about working in the industry-because I have years of experience in it-after they finish school and how their past may affect how an employer will react to them. To paraphrase the email:
"I'm afraid that even though my grades put my at the top of my class that a simple search online about me will have some risky results"
"I used to work in the adult pornography industry and when you look up my name on a google search this becomes VERY apparent."
"If this is an issue how can I talk to an employer about this without eliminating all chances of my gaining the job?"
I want to give them an honest response but I don't want to step over bounds and get in trouble myself. What's the best way to approach this email?
