Here's my issue . . . I have a pretty uncommon name and I live in a small state. I have a distant relative I've never met with the same first and last name who lives in the same city as me. Unfortunately this guy was all over the news a few years ago for going nuts and holding his family hostage at gunpoint (it ended safely). When you google my name you get the usual planning minutes, etc. but you also get news footage and articles of this guy's meltdown. To make it worse none of the news footage has good views of his face so its not obvious he's a different person.
Obviously this is a concern for me in applying for any future jobs. I imagine potential employers being turned off at the notion of an unstable, gun-toting employee after a 5 second google search. Do you think its advisable to bring this up during an interview (if I even get that far) or would that seem a little nuts in of itself? I want to have a footnote on the bottom of my resume that reads "I'm not the crazy Seabishop - please believe me."
