Recently, I've been advocating the use of Twitter for your job search. March Career Madness (#mcm) m the virtual round-up of career advice in the Twitterverse continues to be active. Check it out at Twitter Search, search on #mcm. (Tip: You can also search on key words that are important to you.)
Today, I'm writing from a slightly different perspective: "how not to Tweet."
Within the last 24 hours, there's been an incredible amount of buzz about a job seeker who received a job offer from Cisco then weighed options with his online community:
"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."
A current Cisco employee responded with a snap that would make anyone's face red, "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."
Ouch. ouch. ouch. As always, when in doubt--don't press send.
