Meeting Notes

Stories, news and other important tidbits Working Girls should know. Here are a few things to glean from this work week:

  • Mean Girls in the office? I believe it. According to the American Management Association, 95% of women say that they have felt undermined at some point in their career by other women. [Daily Mail]
  • Say so long to the days of just a basic criminal background & credit checks when looking for a new job. Some companies are now requiring candidates to pass a social media background check. The year old start-up company Social Intelligence scrounges the Internet for everything the candidate has done on the Internet in the past seven years. Time to start de-tagging. [NY Times]
  • This video is almost a year old, but worth a watch. COO of Facebook, Sheryl Sandberg, gives a speech at TED about why there is a smaller percentage of women at the top of their professions. She then gives 3 great pieces of advice for women in the work force. [You Tube]

I really hate the idea of my social media life being investigated. I'm not saying it's unfair or unexpected, but as a person who very much believes in personal liberty to the fullest extent, I hate it.
