Social Media and Recruiting
Ellen Langer: Mindful vs. Mindless
When you are "not there" you are "not there" to know that you are "not there" (and we are "not there" much of the time)
credit card example, store clerk asked customer to sign credit card, then to sign credit card slip, then compared signatures- had to be the same, mindlessly following protocol
Example of Mindlessness
"Not there" + social media = potentially negative/embarrassing consequences
Mindful vs. Mindless
