According to a recent poll conducted by E-Poll Market Research, the most hated person in the United States is….
It’s not shocking that the Florida mother who recently was acquitted of murdering her two-year-old daughter Caylee has such anger and hostility directed towards her. Her not guilty verdict was the most shocking verdict in America since the O.J. Simpson verdict. Anthony garnered 94 percent of the votes, while Spencer Pratt (88 percent) and Nadya “Octomom” Suleman (87 percent) were second and third. As for Simpson? He’s locked up in jail but was still the fourth most hated American in the poll.
At some point in the future – unless Anthony cashes in with a big payday, such as by posing naked for Hustler Magazine, which reportedly wants the 25-year-old for a photo shoot – she will need to get a job.
The question “will Casey Anthony ever get hired?” was posted to a number of Twin Cities-area hiring managers, human resources personnel and career coaches.
Many declined to comment, others did so anonymously, such as one hiring manager who said:
“I wouldn’t want to be the person conducting that interview,” she said. “It’s going to be hard for anyone to give her a fair chance knowing her history. It’s like her background check is already done before she was even interviewed for a job. I would be curious, however, to see her resume. What would she put on it?”
She added: “But at some point, someone will give her an opportunity. What she does with it, who knows?”
Patrick Foss is President of ThinkTalent Human Capital Partners, a Twin Cities-based company that partners with businesses to solve problems related to acquiring, managing, and retaining key talent.
Ultimately, what it comes down to is the skills and experience Anthony can bring to the table. At some point, some employer will look beyond the headlines and hype and say “can this person really help our company?”
At this point the noise is too loud for Anthony to do anything but be in exile for a while, says Foss.
“If she concentrated on attaining a skill or specialty there really isn’t any reason she wouldn’t be hired in a few years,” he adds.
Among the reasons why is, she wasn’t convicted of a major crime so the events of the past few years will not appear on her background check, which is the primary insurance taken by employers to identify any skeleton’s in applicants closet.
“I believe Casey Anthony could get hired to do something within the next three years, however, the lack of skills, values and judgment displayed so publicly would have to improve for her to ever be anything other than a liability – personally and professionally,” said Foss.
