Hmmm.....They forgot to mention that if browsing through GMATClub or the chatroom at work improves your productivity....

Caught Twittering or on Facebook at work? It'll make you a better employee, according to an Australian study that shows surfing the Internet for fun during office hours increases productivity.

The University of Melbourne study showed that people who use the Internet for personal reasons at work are about 9 percent more productive that those who do not.

I guess I was wrong. Turns out I've been the best employee at my company since I got admitted.

Well I have no real work to do for the next 2.5 weeks so I guess surfing the internet all day will make me the world's best employee!
