Subject:Do you need an attitude adjustment? From:TIMMERMAN <timmerma -at- IPDLINK -dot- IPD -dot- ANL -dot- GOV> Date:Tue, 11 Feb 1997 15:23:29 CST
Here's something for y'all to think about.
If you were job hunting, do you think one way to find out about a
perspective employer and it employees is to subscribe to this list
and/or peruse the archive? Do you think you could find a few
companies or people you would never in you life work for or with
because of the comments made to the list?
Do you also think this method would work if you had a position to
fill? Could you get an idea of an applicant's personality by the type
and tone of his or her comments to this list? Do you think you could
find the know_it_all you are looking for or, instead, maybe that
person who works well with others?
I don't require an answer, but I'd be surprised if none were forth
coming. So, surprise me everyone.
