Think Before Bragging

This morning as I was whizzing past the television, I caught a glimpse of one of Tiger Woods’ alleged mistresses conducting an interview on one of the national morning shows. The first thing I thought to myself was “good luck in your future job search.” I hope she invests any money she makes off this news event, or plans on self-employment. That’s because she might have a really difficult time getting a job. Don’t get me wrong, it is possible. But consider this. Recruiters will conduct a background check which also includes an internet search engine. What do you expect to come up? I SLEPT WITH TIGER WOODS AND TOLD EVERYONE ABOUT IT!

In today’s digital world, it’s easier than ever to track down information on anyone. Keep that in mind before you brag about your transgressions.
