One of the leading career search sites, CareerBuilder.com, is sponsoring ‘unhappy hours’ on a Facebook page for job seekers and anyone looking for new employment.
This begs the question…would you be seen at an ‘unhappy hour’? I mean, it’s one thing to hang out with your co-workers and complain about your boss while consuming the mojito of the day…but would you declare to your posse that you’re going to ‘unhappy hour’?
Now, I do realize that this is just a marketing strategy to get the passive job seekers thinking about their next opportunity. But isn’t there an image quotient that we need to maintain?
I would like to think that no one will check the box on their application that says they heard about the job at ‘unhappy hour’…that might send a red flag to a hiring manager. Think about it…
