The government has never been know for its intelligent spending habits, but this takes it to a new level. The U.S. Department of Justice has spent over half a million dollars for the sole purpose of making its LinkedIn account look nice.
If you can think of a way to make the U.S. Department of Justice sound like a desirable employer while spending less than $544,338, maybe you should be working there. The good news is they’ll be recruiting you directly via social media soon. All of that taxpayer dough was dropped on a contract with Carahsoft Technology Corporation, which will be tasked with bettering the DOJ’s “brand” on LinkedIn, a free professional networking website.
That’s 500 Thousand, not 500 Millions 😉
