"6 mos. unemployed

87 interviews

0 offers

1 week until we lose our home.

I have NEVER in all my years of recruiting or in my own job searches seen such horrible, rude, inconsiderate behavior. PLEASE read the resume first. Value applicants time too. Make time to speak to the candidate & be present. Stop saying you only need a BS then hire someone with a MS. Quit overlooking the unemployed. Learn what emotional intelligence is. Stop ghosting."

In this episode, we discuss her viral post, the widespread mistreatment of candidates in Recruiting, the Future of Work, and why supporting Social Causes is important in the ethos of hiring.
