Forget Layoffs, Cisco Fatty, Tweets Will Keep You Unemployed
They say Twitter is as Twitter does and, these days, it seems to be true. To be fair, some of the least sharp knives in the Twittersphere's drawer are ever-apt to find occasion to post something that could...well...get them in a wee bit of trouble.
In this case, said trouble happens to concern said applicant (known less generously as, ahem, Cisco Fatty) had a new job prospect with none other than Cisco. With the the thin veil of illusion privacy gently draped across said applicant's keyboard and computer screen, this bright light decided it would be a great idea to say the following: "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."
To which a representative of said internet company, one Tim Levad, happened to stumble upon and respond to said 'Fatty' with appropriate consternation and a good dose of tough love: "I’m sure they would love to know that you will hate the work. We here at Cisco are versed in the web."
Um. Yeah. Time to update that resumé again there, kiddo. And make sure those Facebook settings are set to private! You never know who's going to bust you for unsolicited honesty. Especially on the job hunt, 'tis best to keep quiet or at least be more covert with your tweetin'.
