Career (Con)Quest #40: Jumping the Ropes

strip #40 jumping the ropes

And how far are you willing to go for the job?

Yup, asking job candidates to do squats, push ups or lift weights in the corporate gyms was a bit of an HR fad in 2017

And today, some hiring practices are still as weird as it can get.

Think hiring over text messages or asking to converse with an HR chatbot prior to getting a hold of the real person.

Or asking the potential hires to sign up at least 200 new customers as one digital banking startup did.

Anyhow, some recruiting practices can get really unorthodox. Should you tolerate them? Absolutely not if they feel too excessive or unreasonable.
