Son-you're just not Goldman material; or Dude-You've been MYSPACED (FaceBooked too)
In the stock market, bottoms and tops are often made on events that no one ever pinpoints beforehand.
Markets go up and down further than the experts think and turn for reasons the pundits miss.
I just read a great piece in today's New York Times that reports recruiters checking out candidates MySpace and FaceBook pages. It is starting to cost candidates jobs.
It is the first time I have read about this angle and I think it alters the landscape immediately.
I think it's fair and completely relevant for recruiters to include this material in an overall evaluation.
The landscape for freedom of expression could change fast.
Sex or a Career. Let' s see who wins.
