Hey everyone,

So I have been doing a lot of job-related research recently - thinking about a move - but I stumbled across this article detailing how to avoid the axe for rookie mistakes (http://www.jobs.net/Article/CB-62-Talent-Network-IT-Avoid-the-Axe-for-Rookie-Mistakes/). This article brings up a few good ones that I didn't consider - especially the social media one. I hear all the time about people not-necessarily meaning to, but they end up getting tagged on FB in a terrible picture! And I guess that's kind of like, don't let your friends take dumb pictures of you kind-of-a-thing, but Friday evening when I'm done with the work week I unwind with a little vodka. Now I don't get trashed, but I certainly would let someone take a drunken picture of me lol.

What do you guys think? Have you ever been tagged in a terrible picture and gotten flack from your employer about it? Or have you avoided it? How did you do it? Tell me all! Lol.
