Now that’s thoughtful!

“Amid Tough Climate, a Thoughtful Recruitment Process.” That’s what the New York Times headline was yesterday. It was about a job opening that drew hundreds of applicants. I saw the title and said, “Ten bucks says it went to a good-looking young white woman.  With blonde hair.”

Now the article is titled $13 an Hour? 500 Sign Up, 1 Wins a Job.  Guess I wasn’t the only person who thought it wasn’t such a thoughtful process.

Nobody ever gives me my ten bucks.

  1. OMFG. So that guy asked his interviewees 128 questions – and then asked a few people some of the same questions AGAIN in a second interview – and made someone come in for a second interview on an hour notice – and then based his hiring decision on her answer to a completely stupid hypothetical question irrelevant to anything having to do with her competency to perform the job.

    I think the NYT has got “thoughtful” and “abusive” confused. You can see why! Happens all the time really!
