We take it too personally when hear that our job application is rejected. Especially if it is the position we really wanted or spent hours on writing the essay and filling out the forms. All in all, we are people and it is hard not to take it to heart -…Continue

Almost exactly one year ago, my husband and I adopted our little fur baby from the local animal shelter. We both grew up with pets, but this was our first (and only child) together as a couple. Our sweet guy, Hurley, immediately became a part of our family and dramatically influenced our official new lifestyle as doggie people.
As his one year adoption anniversary approached, I wanted to come up with a way to celebrate how much love and enjoyment he has brought our…Continue

I know that uncomfortable feeling my poor husband gets when faced with this query because it’s the same one I get when a candidate asks for feedback after…Continue
Like many people in this economy, I've spent a fair amount of time out of work. It's simply not fun. You become so callous to rejection -
if you hear anything at all - that an automated response telling you
"Thank you for your application. At this time we have found more
qualified candidates" is almost something to look forward to.
It's a good thing to keep in mind when dealing with recruits who are out of work and looking. Handle the rejection with…Continue

So here's the deal. For the past couple of months, customers using our applicant tracking software have been asking for an efficient way to acknowledge candidates that don't make the cut. At first blush, this seemed easy enough. But, as our product team began researching and designing the feature, all sorts of complexities became evident.
Some interesting questions were raised. Questions like:
