Professionalism and Tumblr
People, do NOT rant about others on Tumblr. ESPECIALLY if you know people in your real life follow your account. Most importantly, rant about people in a PROFESSIONAL workplace, group, or organization. If you rant about someone getting a position you wanted, you are already proving to others how UNPROFESSIONAL you are, making them feel right about their decision NOT to hire or vote for you. I don’t care if you put the whole vague “this person” or never include their names. If your implications are clear and heavy enough, people will KNOW and it reflects BADLY. If you want to rant online, fine. But be careful of who’s reading it. EVERYTHING is open online unless you privatize it or control who gets to read your posts.
People complain about not being chosen for a position, but you make yourself look worse if you rant online. You can’t be dumb, immature teenagers with a Tumblr reposting cutesy, fake deep thoughts and rants as easily anymore. Your employers will KNOW.
Boom. Sorry that this itself is a rant and may come across hypocritcal, but it’s true. I’m all for expressing yourself, but be aware of the consequences when it comes to applying for jobs. Bosses do check your Facebook and name on Google. They’re not gonna hire just anybody who pulls a good interview on the spot.
