To Tweet or NOT to Tweet

When not to Tweet. Some people just don’t know when to keep their opinions to themselves.

Excited about his job prospect, he Tweeted:

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.

Of course, because he is not the only person on Twitter, an executive from the company responded:

Who is the hiring manager. I’m sure they would love to know that you will hate the work. We here at Cisco are versed in the web.

Genius!

    You have to watch the youtube spoof. HILARIOUS! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8d8vQBA_sJ8
    The “ordinary and plain looking girls” part cracks me up.

  3. Talk about open mouth insert foot! Question for you becomes how would you get him out of that spot?

      Well, I think the only possible action would be to start with an apology. I would post an apology to the company on my account. He should then contact the hiring manager as soon as possible and inform them of the careless mistake and remind them why he was chosen for the position.

      I believe most reasonable people would accept the apology. But at the same time, in the current environment, there were probably 15 other people ready to take that position and the company could easily decide to go with another candidate for the position. Lesson learned.
