Donâ€™t Spend Half Your Work Day On Facebook
Mike Arrington dispenses some excellent career advice today. A Goldman Sachs employee working in the UK was warned by his employer about spending too much time on Facebook. According to Arrington’s calculations he spent about 4 hours per day on the social networking site.
When warned about this, rather than curtailing his activity, he decided to visit Facebook again and post the warning letter he received from the company in his profile.
Itâ€™s a measure of how warped Iâ€™ve become that, not only am I surprisingly proud of this, but in addition, the first thing I did was to post it here, and that losing my job worries me far less than losing facebook ever could.
Now I finally know what investment banking firms look for in employees.
