We’re thrilled to pass along the findings of a new report that says that job seekers are doing what we’ve been begging them (as well as those people who are just fine with their current jobs, thank you very much) to do for years: button down privacy on their social media accounts, and mop up the splatter tracks
of their nonprofessional galivanting if they want to keep it from squashing their career opportunities.
After all, while we’re all for free speech, those rights don’t stop bosses from firing us
if we publicly diss them or the company, and they don’t mean that recruiters are required to consider your candidacy if you do something like bad-mouth a previous employer
on social media.
