Email Can't Replace The Job Interview
from the don't-forget-to-file-your-tps-report dept
While email has become the communications method of choice for managers, it’s failing to replace the face-to-face job interview. Is that really so surprising? While plenty of people are able to find work online sight unseen, it’s little surprise that managers would want to hire people for jobs in an office, or that otherwise require face-to-face contact, only after actually meeting them. So the advice to jobseekers: “To get hired, get up, get dressed, get out and get visible”. If you need reminding of that — particularly the “get dressed” part, you probably need more help getting a job than a newspaper column can provide.
