Below are three quotes taken from this article in Reader's Digest. Highly recommended reading for all members before you send out that resume or go on your job interview!


“The No. 1 thing in job security is your relationship with your boss. Even if he says, ‘I’m sorry I really wanted to keep you, but they made me lay you off,’ that’s almost never true. He probably made that decision.” –Cynthia Shapiro, former human resource executive and author of “Corporate Confidential: 50 Secrets Your Company Doesn’t Want You to Know.”

“Someone might tell you to ‘Be yourself’ in the interview. Don’t be yourself. That’s the worst advice ever. We don’t want people who are neurotic and quirky and whatever else. All we care about is your skill and experience.” –Laurie Ruettimann, HR consultant and speaker in Raleigh, N.C.

“I was asked by one CEO to hire the long-legged girl with the long dark hair even though she didn’t have the right skills. Another time, I was instructed not to hire anyone with children because the company had too many people leaving for soccer games. That kind of thing happens all the time.” –Cynthia Shapiro

I sort of agree with the boss thing because that's what kept me longer at my last job. Basically when he was there he was big on keeping his staff. Once he was fired, not long after so was I and so was half of the staff. It was a political job (government run railroad)and most of the bigwigs were related to somone (welcome to Chicago politics).

I for one wish employers would hire the dark haired long legged girl because then I'd have a job. Very Happy
