Is it just me, or in this age where it is so very easy to send bulk emails to faceless persons full of information of a varying degree of use, are people just getting ruder? Employers seem to be adopting the attitude of ‘I am a very busy and important person, if I want you to know something I’ll call you, otherwise assume you are of little interest to me.
I have been on several job interviews lately, most employers list that if you unsuccessful, they will not bother to contact you. But even those people I have met with in person and have shaken hands with, that have told me they will contact me in the next 2 business days to let me know if I am successful or not, have never bothered to call.
Hell, I don’t want flowers from these guys, or even a phone call if it is too confronting for them but how about an email? How hard is it to collate a list of emails, write ‘sorry, you were unsuccessful’ and hit send? You don’t even have to write my name, just let me know so that I can move on and stop wondering.
People suck. Job hunting sucks. People make it worse.
I’m going to eat something.
I made this a few weeks back. I then promptly moved the recipe and forgot which one it was.
I had this great looking photo of a meal and no corresponding recipe. Things like that make me feel old.
1.3kg Chicken pieces
1 tablespoon olive oil
