I felt so mad and sorry for Lady J for what she had to go through. It’s an issue that has been infuriating me for years. Why don’t job interviewers in Singapore show some basic decency and respect. Haven’t they ever been at the other side of the table? The way a HR hiring manager treats a potential interviewee is a reflection of that company. Don’t they realize that? And sometimes it’s not what you say but how you say it. It can make a world of difference. Basically, you can be honest about your needs, but just be nice.
Am I evil to wish that one day Lady J will be at the other side of that table and have the opportunity to interview this very person? I know I’m being bad but I love it when karma works.
Please read her post and I hope you’ll send her your words of encouragement.
