Nothing is more annoying than having your time wasted by being interviewed for a job by someone who has no interest in hiring you. The tip off is when they ask questions like, why havent you achieved your goal by now? or this job isnt what you went to school for, why would apply for it? Just once, you would like to answer, Because people like YOU: (1) Seem to think that you would never encounter one of those people that are affected by the bad economy youve read about all these years. (2) Only hire those with experience but if the economy is bad, and hiring is at a stand still, how does one get experience without a job. (3) Dont like people of my age, or gender, or race, or ethnicity, or religion, or economic class or political/social views. (4) Read my resume and liked what you saw, but were put off when you actually met me because of .. (see number 3). But instead, you go through the humiliating motions of justifying part of your life to some clown looking for any excuse not to hire you because (lets face it) aint nothing going on but the rent! So, in the interest of lowering stress levels and promoting good will in our society, people in the Human Resource/Personnel business with attitudes like the aforementioned should just stick to the basic Q & A interview. Make sure to finish with, Weve other applicants to interview, and will call you if we dont find a better candidate. That way, they dont add insult to injury, the company doesnt get bad mouthed in the streets, and they avoid a possible discrimination lawsuit.
