Girl Denied Internship After Company Finds A Photo Of Her In A Bikini On Social Media

"I was objectified earlier today by a company because of a picture of me in a bikini. they claimed it made me an “unprofessional.” they screenshot the photo, posted it on their insta story and called me out. I am still baffled that the company handled it in such a manner."

When you apply for a job, some of them ask for your social media accounts. I'd suggest you run the other direction if that happens,  because, most of the time, they do this because they want to go through your life, the one that you keep separate from your professional one. They will, at the end of the day, use that information, one you choose to keep away from the professional forum, against you to deny giving you a position. In other words, this is also another way to make sure your company suffers. Recently, a company took to social media to publicly shame one of their applicants because they found a picture of her on social media in a bikini. 



 

 Kickass Masterminds shared a picture of the girl in a bikini and wrote: PSA (because I know some of you applicants are looking at this): do not share your social media with your potential employer 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 favours in finding a professional job



 

Unsurprisingly, the woman in the picture was shocked a company could do such a thing. She took to Twitter to write: I was objectified earlier today by a company because of a picture of me in a bikini. they claimed it made me an “unprofessional.” they screenshot the photo, posted it on their insta story and called me out. I am still baffled that the company handled it in such a manner. People immediately came to her defense. 



 

This girl applied for an internship at a company, and they put up this screenshot of her in a bikini on their company Instagram, publicly telling everybody they wouldn’t hire her because of this photo. Michaela Okland, the face behind the tweet that made this story viral, said she learned about the whole ordeal after the applicant, Emily Clow, submitted it to her. “I thought it was lame as fu*k,” Okland told Bored Panda. Her Twitter account @SheRatesDogs has over 358K followers and provides a loud voice to people who otherwise could be left unheard.



 

“Most people are super pissed off and supportive of Emily,” Okland said. “It was a shitty circumstance but the situation has gotten Emily some cool new job opportunities! I think the most bizarre part to this was that the company never addressed it or apologized, they’ve done literally everything except that. I don’t think that’s usual.” The girl in the picture then sent a message to the organization, asking them to take the story down, and ultimately they made their profile a private one.
