Is Texting Your Boss Professional?

texting-bossI found this Wall Street Journal article by Lauren Weber, “Text From the Boss: U R Fired,” interesting on many levels. While I agree that firing via text message is hardly a trend, it does beg the question of how today’s new technologies may contribute to individuals compromising on professionalism. Is texting your boss professional? How about texting a person with whom you have an interview? Hmm… all I have to say for now, is check that auto-corrector before sending out anything. While your friends may think incorrect words in a text message are funny, the professionals in your life may not.
