I’m hiring on my team. I just got some vetted resumes sent to me, and one name seemed really familiar. Turns out, they were a manager back when I first started here. They were demanding, occasionally insulting, and politically manipulative within the department. They played their way up and out of the department, regardless of who’s work they had to take credit for, or who’s name they dragged through mud. They left and I wasn’t sad.
And now they’re applying to my Analyst position. I see their resume. Their career hasn’t been great. And they’re not really qualified for this job.
I appreciate time and karma more each day.
Good luck everyone else.
