How Not to Get a Job in Atlanta

A blogger named “jobseeker411” at staffing service FutureStaff makes my point, again and again:

Atlanta Job Seekers….. How not to get a job!

You’ll hear people telling you to prepare for an interview. Baloney! You’re not getting paid for it! Don’t waste your time researching the company; it’s their job to educate you. Don’t bring your resume; if Human Resources are doing their job, they’ll have it out, waiting on you to get there. Don’t waste your time by writing down directions either, you can always call on the way and have the manager talk you through traffic.

Check it out for the rest of the suggestions. They also talk about the flip side.

My Core Ideas

1. "I can't tell you the best way to get a job - because there is no one best way. After 21 years of recruiting, I CAN share things I've seen candidates do to guarantee they DIDN'T get the job."

2. "Most companies don't realize how their recruiting process impacts their candidate pool, and their business. Attention to simple things will result in big improvements."
