When Bad Job Applicants Can Be Your Best Hire

Evil HR Lady

Some people dismiss certain “types”of job candidates out of hand, regardless of skills, experience or potential. If you don’t fit their idea of what an employee should be like, you’re rejected. This is, of course, illegal in the case of race, religion, disability and a few other things, but perfectly legal in many cases. Is this wise behavior? Absolutely not. Once you start hiring people, the last thing you want is a bunch of clones.

How to Use Employee Benefits to Avoid Getting Stood Up by Your Employees

Evil HR Lady

For years, hiring new employees involved a lot of “ghosting.” That is, recruiters and hiring managers would interview candidates — sometimes multiple times — and then never get back to them. No mention of “Thanks so much, but we’ve decided to go another direction” or “We’ve decided not to fill the position.” Just radio silence. Now, the tables have turned. Job candidates stop returning recruiters’ phone calls or simply don’t show up for their first day, never to be heard from again.
