How Jim Got a Job, or The Long and Winding Road to Employment
This is a thought provoking info-graphic on today’s hiring process.
It describes a fictional person’s job search starting online and spending a bunch of time filling out forms, only to get an automated email (Ug, yes another one of those – we use them too!) and a long wait. Success at last, someone from the employer he applied to calls about a different job. Next is a lengthy wait, then interview, then another waiting period, then another interview with an on-the-spot offer, followed by a wait and an official offer with a different title, manager and salary than was verbally offered!
While the road to new or re-employment can be long and twisty, does this process ring true for you? What crazy hiring processes have you been subjected to?
