As a talent acquisition professional, would it concern you to find out that 19% of job seekers would rather spend an entire day at the DMV than go through the frustrations associated with applying for a job online? How about 22% saying they’d rather speak in front of 100 strangers? Or 12% saying they’d rather get a root canal or go skydiving without any training?

Quite frequently I get contacted by people searching for something or someone. Normally, I don’t mind that. Actually sometimes it is flattering that a random stranger or casual acquaintance found something about me intriguing enough to think I’d be a good person to contact to get help with their situation.
