The "Lazy Susan" factor of the hiring desk
It's (sp?) interesting to see the perspectives from the Hiring side of the desk today. After 30 years in this business, the majority on that Hiring side, I can tell you the desk will turn on you. Then see how perfect, smart and "godlike" you and your "opinions" are. That which you use to qualify and determine WHO "goes in the trash" will cause you many sleepless nights someday, as you look back on your career and realize you passed by many qualified applicants in your brash, young arrogance. Some of my best hires couldn't spell or write a cover letter (or Resume for that matter) but had qualities that made them valuable members of the team. Go write a book while you still seem smart Dear (insert today's salutation) for someday, some young smart MBA with all the answers will throw your Resume in the trash and you will wonder why. Good Day (my ass).
