Monday morning Job Interviews?

800 371 Kamal Karanth

Monday morning Job Interviews? Must be stressful for Hiring Managers. Today I had a meeting with a business Head of a fortune100 IT Firm. As I waited, I observed that there were a few people waiting to be interviewed in the lobby. One of them walked to the frontoffice and said:" I was asked to be here at 10, it’s already 1130, I have taken half day leave, I have limited waiting time". The front office lady asked “do you have the number of the interviewer? the job-explorer said no. The receptionist replied that she didn’t either. Right then a gentleman came & introduced himself as the hiring manager to the front office and asked her the order in which the job-explorers had come. The receptionist said she wasn’t aware of that ask but instead offered the visitors register as a backup.  Then, to my amusement hiring manager started to call out names from the visitors’ registry. “Aparna, Suresh, Rajanikanth (no kidding) “Kamal, Kamal (again)" I realized my name was there too on the visitor’s list. I said, “that’s me and I am not here to explore a job". A couple of visitors too excused themselves like me later. The hiring manager ignored us & nonchalantly resumed his callout.   On the interviewing front, I thought I had seen it all 🙂
