The ABCs of NOT securing a job.

You've gone to all the trouble of creating a beautifully presented resume and having all of your documents scanned and sent everything through with an outstanding cover letter. And then you dodge simple questions by email or don’t reply at all. If there’s one way of alerting a prospective employer to the smell of a rat, you’re doing a great job if you’re guilty of either or both of the above. There’s no smoke without fire and I think that it’s high time for criminal reference checks to be made a compulsory part of the recruitment process because that will stop you applying for positions altogether. And that will save everyone’s time.
