Wow, here’s another doozy … hopefully an extremely isolated incident, but apparently some poor schmuck actually lost out on a job opportunity because another candidate had a higher Klout score.
Then once he did who knows what to move it closer to Justin Beiber influencer status, his career prospects magically improved. Amazing what a healthy dose of +K can do!
The following article is brief, but here is a taste:
“Later he learned that he’d been eliminated as a candidate specifically because his Klout score was too low.”
“…spent the next six months working feverishly to boost his Klout score, eventually hitting 72. As his score rose, so did the number of job offers and speaking invitations he received. ‘Fifteen years of accomplishments weren’t as important as that score,’ he says.”
