 @ginidietrich  @JuliaGray1 Incredibly sad. I'll remember that when, if I'm ever job hunting in future, I'll know that if I see an ad asking for a certain Klout score, they won't have the chance to reject me because I don't want to work for *them*. 

 

Though the original point of your post works two ways. If I was job hunting, I know of a few people/companies I'd be interested in working for based on what I've learnt of them thanks to SM. 

 

And, I'm betting that none of them would ever let a Klout score hold any real weight in their hiring decisions.

 @ginidietrich  @JuliaGray1 Do people seriously hire (or not hire) based upon Klout scores?!

 

Seriously, if that's the case, then the people hiring know so little about this industry that they shouldn't be doing the hiring in the first place. 

 

And @JuliaGray1 , if these companies that interviewed you are shallow and uniformed enough to disregard you simply because of a (poor) algorithm, then you're better off without them.
