Poll: Is This 'Two And A Half Men' Star Killing His Career?

After working at a company for 10 years, would you openly bash them and tell people not to take their business there? That's just what 'Two and a Half Men' star Angus T. Jones is doing. But is this stunt killing his career? The 19-year-old, who has played the role of Jake Harper since he was eight, urges viewers to stop watching the show - despite earning a hefty $350,000 per episode. According to Fox News, the actor said that he no longer wants to be a part of the show anymore, saying that it's "filth." "People say it’s just entertainment," he said in a new video for the Forerunner Christian Church. "Do some research on the effects of television and your brain, and I promise you you’ll have a decision to make when it comes to television, especially with what you watch." After causing quite the ruckus about the popular show, Jones has been called the "anti-Sheen" for standing up for his religious beliefs and putting his career at risk. But the question is, how will this move affect Jones's future? Will this stunt help him stand out as an actor or will it end up killing his career? What do you think?

Every hiring manager looks for different skills in the job candidates they're hoping to hire. Not only are job candidates being evaluated on the hard skills they possess; they're also being evaluated on their soft skills—the skills that don't belong on a resume but can be identified during a job interview. It's these soft skills that separate the good employees from the great ones. Executives, managers, and other leaders within an organization keep this in mind when interviewing job candidates and reviewing the performance of current employees.
