Is It Ever Ok to "Ghost" a Job? Twitter's Divided on When/If It's Justified

By Mustafa Gatollari

If the sound of "job ghosting" sounds familiar to you, then it's probably for good reason: it's a trend that's becoming more and more popular with the millennial workforce, who've decided to take a page out of modern romance's book and apply it to their jobs.

In theory, it kind of makes sense. If you're willing to ghost someone you thought you were romantically interested in, you could do the same with your job. At the end of the day, both are relationships with some pretty heavy implications in your life.

But the idea of this newfangled "ghosting" isn't sitting well with a lot of people online, and there's some heated discussions about whether it's cool to "ghost" an employer. As always, Twitter users had their fair share of opinions.
