I received an e-mail from Jobstreet yesterday, and it sort of cracked me up, thanks to the inclusion of the term ‘ffk’ and a link to a dictionary explaining the term.
The whole thing is about SMS-sing/ confirming your interview with your prospective employer. If the person is a no-show, then employers can mark a ‘no-show’ to the jobseekers’ accounts. I think it’s a good move, because for some odd reasons, some people seem to not care if they show up for a scheduled interview. Har?!?!?!?
If you are not interested, then say so lah. Don’t make people change their schedules just for you, then 30 minutes past the scheduled time, bayang pun tak nampak with no phone call to let the interviewer know that you’d be late/ stuck in a traffic jam/ cat in pet hospital/ got fatally bitten by a monster that has been living underground for yonks and decided to resurface and catch the first person in its sight. It is rude to make someone stay past his or her working hours just to interview you and you decided that you have better things to do. Sorry ar, I am not rescheduling your interview a.k.a. go fuck yourself.
My favourite hiring story has to be an intern interviewed by my colleague. The position was for an intern studying computer stuff. When asked if she likes her major, she replied, “No, actually I want to be a geologist.”
It makes me LOL every time.
