How to apply for a job
November 25th, 2010 Posted by: Bafforic
The past few weeks have been rather frustrating. I am now wondering if jobseekers actually take their time to read the job descriptions and especially the how to apply section. It's becoming obvious they don't! I have been fielding calls from clients who are frustrated because candidates have actually been hand-delivering resumes to their offices even though the application details specifically request applications to be sent by email. Just yesterday, a gentleman called to ask for directions of an employer. Why, because he would prefer to hand deliver the application against the wishes of the employer; instructions require applications only be by email. Wow, so what other options are there beyond employers and recruiters dumping resumes sent the improper way. Should employers and recruiters be blamed for a jobseeker's reckless disregard for instructions? I think not. As long as a jobseeker does not follow the application instruction spelt out on the posting, he or she should consider kissing their chances good-bye.

Inappropriate behaviour in the workplace
November 20th, 2010 Posted by: Bafforic
I have been very interested in gathering stats and comments about the most ridiculous behaviour you have experienced in the workplace. I remember an ex-boss who used to break wind loudly and with no apologies, not to mention one being crude. Another example is dating in the workplace. It is deemed inappropriate because of the potential problems that may arise. An article indicates every place of employment has a different demeanor and if you are a person of authority in your workplace, it is up to you to define what appropriate behavior is and what would be deemed unacceptable. Now the question is what is considered appropriate behavior in the workplace. Is it always defined or some are assumed?
