I know several people who are interviewing for jobs these days.
They have superb resumes and are qualified to do the work.
They got called in and aced their preliminary interviews and they got the call back.
They went back in, got grilled by a panel and did well there as well.
They were told they’d hear in a couple of days to a week.
Three weeks have gone by and zilch. No call, no email, no text.
Apparently that’s how it’s done.
In other words, be prepared for a workout worse than any gym, but don’t expect any courtesy back.
Manners are a thing of the past.
Rudeness is the new currency in the workplace.
I think a lot has to do with the tech culture. They don’t care about manners. Just open your head and dump your brain on the table for analysis. They don’t care if you are a living, breathing human being with feelings. In fact that’s a liability.
It seems the M.O. has leaked into most industries now.
Calvin says, “Brains are over-rated. It’s the nose factor that should reign supreme.”
