Emily Clow Instagram
In an Instagram story post, Clow wrote, It is inappropriate and unprofessional to shame an applicant through social media.
Clow tagged Kickass Masterminds’ Twitter account in a subsequent message. The company had, according to Clow’s post, posted the bikini photo to their Instagram story.
The caption accompanying the picture read, PSA (because I know some of you applicants are looking at this): do not share your social media with potential employers if this is the kind of content on it.
I am looking for a professional marketer, not a bikini model. Go on with your bad self and do whatever in private. But this is not doing you any favors in finding a professional job. The caption did not name Clow, nor did it show her face.
