Separate politics and career | Daily #194

If you can, never and I mean never involve politics in your career. I believe that we are at a tipping point where you have to be a compatible human being as well to do a job.

Years ago before the social media craze, we hired people based on their skills. Wanted your house renovated? Hire a handyman based on his/her previous work.

Nowadays, the customer considers their political views, their social media, or even waste time by interviewing the person about their private life.

Don’t believe me? Why do you think companies before a potential hire look up their social media presence? Their work profile could be incredible, but once they see a take or picture that doesn’t align with their ‘COrE VaLuES’ it is a no-go.

It’s becoming too stupid. You want to hire the best in the market cause they are faster in their work which means also cheaper. Back then we didn’t care about their private life and views, but right now sadly we are going to a point where we can’t separate careers from politics.
