Today....I was privy to an all time low. A selfie, attached to a resume and cover letter.
In this selfie-obsessed generation, we have songs about it "Let me Take a Selfie," a new abc comedy show called "Selfie" and I'm fairly positive that if you own a smartphone, you've taken a selfie.
I am not among the throng of selfie-haters....being that I can't drum up enough energy to care about how often a selfie is taken or posted or why.
HOWEVER, there is a time....a place.....a situation....
What is NOT appropriate is to apply for an office job at a agency and attach a selfie.
It wasn't just ANY selfie. No, no. It was a bathroom selfie, complete with, as my associate calls it, the asshole-face. You can SEE the metal stall behind her!!!
The farthest this selfie got this applicant was to be blasted on my blog.
As 20-year olds say these days.....I just...can't.
PS.....if you type "References upon request," I assume 1 of 2 things:
#1. You have absolutely no friends, co-workers or cousins, twice-removed, who would speak favorably of you.
#2. You are too lazy to perform a simple task.
