Moral: You gotta cut some slack to HR people too.
Let’s be honest, dealing with people all day long is a tough job with a lot of cringeworthy moments.
And it leaves a toll on you.
So sometimes that calls are left unreturned, follow-up letters are left unanswered, and you, as a job applicant, receive not the best treatment.
On the other hand, some employers do have a broken recruiting process. Smart HRs are the first to admit that.
If you get asked to:
- Fill in a 30-page questionnaire
- Attend an unreasonable number of interviews
- Schedule and reschedule an interview multiple times
- Ask you take a bunch of tests even before the first interview
…You better turn your back on them.
