Career Makeover Coach

Respect is an important part of the way we live. However in today's society, respect is often seen as an afterthought. And unfortunately this same attitude carries over into the world of work.

should managers give job candidates unsolicited feedback?

Ask A Manager

In response to an earlier post , commenter L P asked: How do people feel about the idea of providing unsolicited feedback? I run HR at a small company and receive between 50 and 100 resumes a year. Some of these have been truly awful – including portrait photos, flower borders, no order to previous experience list, poor formatting etc. I would really like to tell these people their resumes are not getting them interviews, but not one has asked for feedback.
