TikToker Who Recorded Herself Getting Fired Has a New Job

Remember the TikToker who recorded herself getting fired – without her company’s knowledge – and then posted it on the internet? Well, she’s got a new job now! Despite people believing that Brittany Pietsch’s antics would make her unhirable, she’s now employed yet again. Will this new company come to regret its decision as the last one likely does? Only time will tell.

The New Job

Pietsch took to LinkedIn this time to reveal her new employment opportunity. She wrote, “I am so excited to announce I am joining the EQ.app team to help promote the launch of their new AI tool, EQbuddy! Before I entered the SaaS [software as a service] space, I worked at a staffing firm as a recruiter and account manager for several Fortune 500 companies. As anyone in recruiting knows (whether you’re a recruiter, hiring manager, HR, etc.), we rarely get to spend enough time to focus on the more human aspects of recruiting. When you spend over half your time just searching for candidates, analyzing resumes, sifting through several different sites looking for who may or may not be in the job market. It’s too much! When I tell you I would have KILLED for a tool like this. It would have allowed me to spend more time doing what I actually love to do in my job: connect with people and match gaps in talent with solutions.”

The Public’s Response

Once again, the public responded to Pietsch’s post. One person wrote the encouraging words, “Love to see this!” While another expressed their support by writing, “I’m so happy to hear about your new gig.” However, Pietsch is still on the employment prowl, as her new position doesn’t seem to be full-time. She said on TikTok that she’s “in the job hunt now looking for my next career move.” She explained her strategy by saying, “I’ve mostly just been going through all my messages, my connections on LinkedIn, my inquiries, I’ve made a list of companies that have reached out to me or those that haven’t that have always been on my bucket list. I’m using this opportunity to take my time, sift through everything, talk to as many recruiters and hiring managers as I can, making sure that wherever I am next is going to be the best fit for me.”

All we can say is, good luck to EQ.app!

Elon Musk Mocks Twitter With a Chuck Norris Meme

Elon Musk has finally backed out of the Twitter deal that made most tech fanatics lose their minds. The billionaire and the social media platform have been at each other’s throats for most of the year. Amidst this usual back and forth, the billionaire decided to do something funny on Twitter.

Twitter Ready to Sue Elon Musk

Musk has already started mocking Twitter with memes after he pulled out of his $44 billion agreement to buy the social media platform, and Twitter said it’s ready to sue him. Musk claimed that Twitter was lying about the number of spam bots on the micro-blogging site and thus backed out of the deal, spurring Twitter to threaten legal action to enforce the agreement. The Twitter board is committed to closing the merger at the price and terms agreed to by Mr. Musk, and plans to take legal action to enforce the merger agreement, said Twitter’s chairman, Bret Taylor.

The Meme

Musk tweeted four images of him laughing on Monday with captions that read: “They said I couldn’t buy Twitter. Then they wouldn’t disclose bot information. So now they want me to buy Twitter in court. So now they have to disclose bot information.” A follow-up tweet pictures Chuck Norris with only one chess piece on his side, while a chessboard in front of him shows a complete match with Musk’s following tweet, “Chuckmate.”

Falling Stock Prices of Twitter

Following Musk’s announcement that he’s abandoning the deal, Twitter’s stock prices are sinking. In lieu of Musk’s decision to back out of his agreement to buy Twitter, the stock fell 5.3% to $34.95 in premarket trading on Monday, erasing about $1.4 billion in market value for the company. Conversely, Musk’s electric carmaker shares increased by 1% after much fluctuation. Reports are saying that it’s not clear if the recently failed deal will affect Musk’s chances of becoming the world’s first trillionaire by 2024.
