Loose Tweets Sink Job Offers
It’s still hard to believe that there are people today that do not realize that we live in a radically transparent world where virtually nothing is private.
One such person apparently Tweeted herself out of a nice job at Cisco with this tweet:
Cisco just offered me a job! Now I have to weigh the utility of a fatty paycheck against the daily commute to San Jose and hating the work.
You know where this is going, don’t you?
So, Cisco–being a TECH COMPANY–has people that use, you know, the web! One such employee, Timmy Levad a channel partner for Cisco, saw the tweet and sent back a reply which I’m sure sent shivers down the spine of the potential new recruit:
@theconnor then apparently set her account to private, closed the window shades, and hid under the bed–hoping it would all just go away. No news yet on whether she still got the job, but you can keep track of the saga here.
