Employers Profile Prospective Employees Using Twitter
Posted November 18th, 2013 @ 7:32am by KFBK News - Tim Lantz

Employers have a new tool to determine if you're right for that job you want.

If you don't get that job or maybe the promotion you're after, you can thank the software engineers at IBM.

They've come up with an app that will allow employers to scan your Tweets and come up with a personality profile on you.

The Mail Online reports researchers say the software can go so far as to determine how emotionally stable you are.

They claim words you use in Tweets say a lot about your character traits.

Use words like "perfect" and you'll judged as a perfectionist, but words such as "we," "friends," and "family" suggest you're caring.

Either way, your next employer may be profiling you, and you won't even know it.
