IA.  I sometimes think the position is already taken but folks go thru the motions to make it look kosher.  "They" already know they're about to let their friend get in but they can't be obvious about it.


There's always the possibility of internal candidates/employee references having the 'edge' in an competitive industry. Especially for entry-level positions, an outsider is up against current/former interns and other referrals. That said, external candidates have been chosen over the previously referenced people due to being extraordinary/stellar candidates. 





It's easier to hire internal candidates. Most jobs will give a increase based off of a certain percentage of your current salary. Cheaper for the department's budget. We had an internal candidate transfer with a 4% increase since that's all the department could afford....an external candidate would have gotten 6k more of what she's getting and she just got a measly 4%

I once walked out of an interview because the interviewer was late. I told the receptionist, I wouldn't get the job if I were late, so why should I consider working here if they're late!

I have a little rant:

I've been applying for jobs for  multiple months. It grinds my gears when I have to fill out my information in an applicant tracking system like Taleo: they ask me to fill in my resume (un-formatted), upload my formatted resume, then have enough nerve to ask for my employment history where I have to (yet again) fill in the same exact sh*t that's on my resume.  Why though???Confused The second employment history record is usually the official Employment Application, and is for candidates that make it past the screening round. These are usually placed in your personnel files if hired. If not hired, these are still kept with other applications for compliance purposes. A brief summary of your job duties (1-2 sentences) should suffice here.


BHM HR Folks: What gives?  I've  applied for hundreds of jobs since March of 2013  (not all through an ATS).  I don't understand why in the hell it's necessary for me to fill out my information multiple times. I'm not doing that, instead I put "Please See Resume".  It's redundant and incredibly time consuming. Angry  Da fuq?

Riddle me this: So I get an interview, go to said interview -- you tell me the timeline (about a week) before you make a decision. Ok. Cool.

This is never true. Ever. 
Delays in the hiring process (hiring manager(s) is out of town, sick, wants to interview more people, holiday season so sporadically in-office, final candidate withdrawal)...many reasons for delays. We try to wrap up recruitment in 30 days or less for most positions however, and notify those not selected as quickly as possible. 

Why can't you just send me an e-mail, let a nicca know you chose another candidate instead of making me wait a month. Hell, if you know right away you don't want me, why can't you just tell me right then. I mean, sh*t...

I'm not going to get crunk. It's cool. 

I'm currently employed at an Engineering Firm while I'm on the job hunt and it's so hard to keep lying to my boss, making up excuses (I'm running out of themConfused), ducking and dodging to go to interviews only to get there and the HR people:

-Don't respect my time -- they're late
Like, "Oh-I-forgot-about-this-scheduled meeting-you're-going-to-have-to-wait-30-40 minutes," late.

This has happened to me at least 4 times. Yikes! That's not acceptable, someone goofed up somewhere down the line.

Anyway. I'm done. 


I kind of figured with the holiday season stuff. Delay, Delay, Delay...ugh. I may go on hiatus and just wait for a month and see who calls me back.

Well you never know what can turn up thru your network. Sounds silly but try to think positively and believe that the job that is meant for you is out there and will turn up.

I know how much it sucks to be kept wondering if you got a job or not. Keep your head up

Also, try seeing if they're willing to schedule interviews before or after work...a lot of employers understand that someone currently working may not be able to take off all of the time.


I think I'm going to have to try that -- it's starting to look super obvious to my boss and collegues. You can only use, "I have doctors/dentist appointment" so many times. Confused I don't want to jeopordize my current employment.
