Many employers have discovered that employee happiness has a direct impact on the success of a company. So, they work hard to make that happen.
So, enjoying your job doesn’t seem so strange anymore. It’s ok to be a happy employee!
I know a hiring manager who was overwhelmed, so she posted a job opening for an Admin.
The small company this hiring manager works for doesn’t have a Human Resources Department. So, the job would be posted on a job board with her name as the contact person. How would she field all the resumes and calls that would come in?! This, on top of her already overloaded plate.
Then came the daunting task of reviewing resumes and cover letters…
My industry is falling apart… and I couldn’t be happier about it.
Because it is time for HR to die.
This might sound like something melodramatic or vindictive, but truthfully, it’s neither. Let me explain.
One of the biggest questions I get from friends, family, colleagues and clients is often, “I haven’t heard back after my interview/resume. Do you think that’s a bad sign?”
In the modern technology age, we’re trained to set this unrealistic expectation that the information should be available to us immediately. When it comes to HR and hiring, however, it’s a whole other ballgame. Unfortunately the lack of feedback after submitting a resume or attending an interview often leaves candidates in the dark, wondering…
“What did I do wrong?”
The answer is… potentially nothing!
