This Post Belongs To Facebok, Not LinkedIn

“I hate my previous job. The boss shouts at me all the time. He allows his blue-eyed boy to come in late and gets great performance review every year. I hate it so much that I resigned. I wish I will get a better job than this crap. And I don’t care what other people say.”

This kind of posting has its place in Facebook, not in LinkedIn. And, you better lock down your profile as well and pray that potential hiring managers or future bosses do not discover your feed.

Still don’t give a sh*t?

Think again.

Unless you plan to retire and live like a hermit with plenty of resources to live on, your postings on social media will be there forever. In fact, your questionable posts and pictures might last longer than you are. Future employers will think twice about hiring you. Behaviour like that are not tolerated. If you had posted something unprofessional like that, chances are, you might do it again.


Pick your battle venue.
