“He prizes ambiguity; he loves to keep you guessing.” – Lionel Shirer

I have one more rant about hiring manager quirks then I will return to the Land of the Positive.

Dear Hiring Managers:

If you’re going to require an application as part of the hiring process, please state that in the job posting. I know you probably hear from a great deal of people who say they hate filling out applications when they don’t even get an interview. However, it can be just as frustrating to develop a personalized cover letter, polish up a resume, wait weeks only to find out you have one more step before even being considered.

So I ask you to be mindful of our time, as well. We will gladly go through the necessary steps of your hiring process. We just want to do it as efficiently as possible.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Sincerely, Job Hunters Everywhere
