ForeverDecember's new thread. Applications and Candidates.
So let's begin:
On an application today (at a friend's office):
How did you hear about *company I work for*?: Threw a friend
Interview tip #2: Jeans and a lime green tank top are not interview attire.
Interview tip #3: Asking for the receptionist's number while you are waiting for an interview isn't the best first impression.
Interview tip #4: Spell check your resume. For the love of sheep, spell check your resume.
Interview tip #5: Don't eat part of the styrofoam water cup while filling out your application and then leave it on the table with bite marks and nibbles taken out of it. That is just weird and frankly pretty gross.
Interview tip #6: Extreme and blatant racism and sexism will not get you a job (at least here). If I had it my way, I'd tell you to fark off but I have to be polite.
Interview tip #7: Constant, loud sighs when I give you some paperwork to do is not a good sign. If you are annoyed or think it is too much to ask to fill out an application, what can I expect from you on a job?
Interview tip #8: It says on your social security card to not laminate it. Please stop laminating them. That includes wrapping it in scotch tape. They are actually invalid when you do that.
