Mating and dating practices
I’ve written that up, and made a list of who I’d like to send it to. Do I send it from my company email address while it’s still active, or my personal gmail?
Do I push it out before my two weeks at my current company are up, or wait until the two week gap in between jobs?
They’re pretty basic “I’ll be leaving company X for company Y.
If you need to get in touch with me in the future, here’s how” kind of stuff.
What should I tell the hiring manager when she, inevitably, drops my name?
You’d be doing her a favor if you stopped lying to her and told her what’s going on.
After I found one, I learned that there was another internship position open, so I referred her based on our personal relationship during which she had proven to be intelligent, punctual, and eager to learn. During the course of her internships, we worked closely together and she was often lazy and unprofessional.
She would use company time and resources to apply for other jobs daily, was not on top of her work tasks or email, and never took the initiative to join in when our supervisor taught us something new or gave us more challenging work.
Make it clearer in the moment that the question is wildly inappropriate.
You answered it as if it were any other question about company policies, rather than the gross, out-of-line statement that it was. ” followed by, “I’m having trouble understanding this question as anything other than wildly inappropriate.” Followed by keeping a really close eye on him, because someone who does this is usually someone who’s going to have loads of other problems too (as you saw later that day).
I don’t blame you for that; it’s hard to have a perfect answer in the moment when you’re so taken off-guard. Frankly, it’s so wildly inappropriate and indicative of other likely problems that it also wouldn’t have been unwarranted to revisit the question of whether you’d made the right hire (had he not taken care of that for you a few hours later). I don’t want to be a reference for my lazy acquaintance I’m finding myself in between a rock and hard place.
It’s too much in the model of “I’m a perfectionist” or “I work too hard” or other attempts to answer with something the applicant hopes the interviewer will actually see as a strength.
(Perfectionism can actually be a crippling weakness, so it’s always weird when people don’t realize that.) 5.
