Tasha Nails It

Link to May 25 Sites & Soundbytes post on Openbook.

Excerpt:  Perhaps it is old fashioned to think that people should be more cautious about this. But one wonders what in the world people are thinking with some of this. As an employer who Googles and searches on Facebook when someone applies to a position, this could be the difference between landing a job or not.

And from Retiring Guy's experience, it's the Google searches that provide the most eye-popping and enlightening moments.  The Web allows employers to read between the lines, complete with footnotes.

Moral of the story:  Don't be a blabbermouth.

The Honeymooners.  The "Blabbermouth" episode, January 1956 (when Retiring Guy attended kindergarten at Whittier Elementary School in Great Falls, Montana.)
