Will GOP spoil the Obamacare IT jobs boom? Kelly and Michael say employers review Facebook friends' lists of applicants
This morning, Kelly and Michael (that is, on “Live with Kelly on Michael” on ABC from New York) were discussing how most employers now look up who your Facebook friends are, as part of a “background investigation”. It seems a little overdone. Pretty soon, people would feel that they have to delete Friends or remove Twitter Followers to protect “online reputation”.
I still get plenty of mainframe job requisitions for Obamacare, all over the country. I guess recruiters are convinced that the GOP won’t be able to defund Obamacare. Even if they could, the law goes into effect and the exchanges for individual policies open next Tuesday, October 1.
