Hints For Job Seekers - #1

[The following is a repeat from a blog of mine 11/15/2009.]

Anyone looking for a job should be aware that anything they do while applying for a job is being observed. When a person brings their children in while they fill out an application, it tells the hiring personnel that childcare will be an issue for that potential employee. If someone can't get a babysitter on the day he or she wants to fill out the application, it's best to delay it until the babysitter is available.

A related side note is that it's not a good idea to admit that you left a previous job due to not having someone to take care of the kids.


  1. You have such an interesting job. I bet you could write a novel on stories just like this!

  2. I know a manager at a McDonalds restaurant who threw an application away when they were desparate for employees because the person handed the application via drive thru. If that person had walked in with the application, they would have been hired. First impressions do make a difference.
