Tweeted out of a job: The "Cisco Fatty" story

Twitter is all a-tweet with the recent exchange between a prospective Cisco hire and another Cisco employee. The first wrote (the tweet has since been deleted):

Cisco just offered me a job! Now I have to weigh the utility of a fatty paycheck against the daily commute to San Jose and hating the work.

The tweet was seen by a channel partner advocate for Cisco, who tweeted back:

@theconnor Who is the hiring manager. I'm sure they would love to know that you will hate the work. We here at Cisco are versed in the web.

The career-limiting faux pas has been immortalized with its own "Cisco Fatty" Web site.

So remember, kids, protect yourselves.
