There will always be the debate about living to work or working to live, but regardless of personal agenda, your behaviour should always be of a high standard.

An individual’s bad behaviour outside of work may not get him fired, but it could cause his boss to view him differently, especially if what he did goes against the boss’s values or those of the company. Examples of bad behaviour include; disclose your employer’s secrets, badmouth your boss, co-workers or clients post harmful information about your employer on your blog, make racist, sexist or other statements that reflect your prejudices, get arrested and stalk or harass a colleague.

 If an employer learned something about a job candidate, perhaps he or she wouldn’t hire that person. What do you think? Should something a person does off the job affect his or her career? Please post your comments.
