    If this is a thing with your workplace, make sure you dot your I's and cross your T's when it comes to documentation regarding time off scheduled in advance. You don't want the refusal to work to come back and bite you in the rear.

      Inside the team we use different slack channels for different projects and slack sms to get in touch with the customers.
      All the other messengers are in the past for us now.

        I genuinely cannot tell if this is a real account.

        If this is a real account, welcome.

        If this is a bot, welcome as well.

            Did you change jobs? I thought your worked in the human care industry- taking care of other people....

            If you still do that, the irony. Care the patients and hurt the workers. Soon enough you will become a patient.

              This is basically why job hunting is a full-time job in and of itself. Most applications take 45-90 minutes to fill out, and this isn't counting the time spent cultivating your CV/Resume to suit that specific employer.

              This is one of the main reasons people stay put while absolutely despising their position.

              EDIT: Nevermind, I'm a dolt. I misread the graphic and was thinking from the applicant's P.o.V. This is the employer's P.o.V.

                I think it is from the applicant's POV.

                    Most of the healthcare systems in the area take their employees, eat them alive, spit out the bones, and slap a "now hiring heroes" sign on the window.

                    It's no surprise that most of my coworkers use heavy amounts of weed or booze to cope with this ****.

                        The way I interpret it is 44 applicants get no response from potential employer. The ghosted is 2 applicants the employer tries to contact for an interview and employer is ghosted. Withdrawn are applicants that say no to job before getting an offer.

                        I've only hired for 1 position so far in my career, and this graphic doesn't surprise me. Now if I can just get my employer to approve posting a backfill for my Quality Engineer that is moving across the country, I can go through this fun* process again.


                        *fun of course being dripping with sarcasm.

                        • Along the lines of discussion on interviewing, I saw a program about the use of AI in interviews and the application process, including in video interviews. Companies are using programs that analyze the interviewee's voice/speech patterns and facial movements during the interview. Apparently these programs can help identify "characteristics" that may be desirable for the job offered.

                          Anyone here seen this is use?
                          That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

                            No, and it sounds just as awful as companies who make candidates take personality tests to determine "culture fit". In fact, I'm quite sure my current CEO would shake his head at this, not to mention the expense of it. When we hire an experienced consultant, we look for candidates with a track record of being collaborative problem solvers. When we hire juniors/associates, we look for enthusiastic tinkerers and/or career changers, not so much 23 year-olds fresh out of college who aren't sure what they want career-wise.

                            Where I have heard of AI/VR being used lately is by very large firms like my former employer, who have been onboarding new associates during the pandemic and are trying to recreate the in-person onboarding experience with a "virtual office" and such.
