Managers to Millennials: Job Interview No Time to Text
CNBC ^ | April 29, 2013 | Paul Davidson

Newly minted college graduates soon entering the job market could be facing another hurdle besides high unemployment and a sluggish economy. Hiring managers say many perform poorly—sometimes even bizarrely—in job interviews.

Human resource professionals say they've seen recent college grads text or take calls in interviews, dress inappropriately, use slang or overly casual language, and exhibit other oddball behavior.

I just interviewed a bunch of College student for an intern program. By and large they showed up well dressed and acted appropriately. They were all engineering student if that means anything.

I work part time as an adjunct Professor. If I give anything other than the highest grade, I am hit questions, insults and arguments for weeks. It is incredible.

In WI, we have verify the recall which is a database of all those who signed the recall against Gov. Walker. That’s the best way I know of to ID Leftists. No need to ask the question.

“I’ve often wondered why young people today seem to unablel to TURN OFF THE PHONE!”

As an owner of a medical clinic, we have a policy of forbidding employees from using cell phones at their work stations. It’s counterproductive and could result in security leaks (we have to be careful of open lines, copying medical info). The patients are also on the phone all the time. We have a policy of no cell phones, but patients seem to break the policy all the time.
I thought of getting a cell phone jammer, but to my surprise, they are illegal in the US.

Yep, which is why ending teacher tenure is awful idea. Just encourages rampant grade inflation.

The entire premise of education reform is that the kids are wonderful and brimming with enthusiasm to learn. They aren’t. It’s mostly a quasi-thuggish lot demanding “respect”.

Companies can move and hire overseas and will.

She is young enough to remember that you did not even sneeze during these times around the patients nor the attendings.

How about people who yawn in public without making any attempt (with at least one free hand) to cover their mouth?

I agree.

I remember reading an interview with Simon Cowell of American Idol fame. He was trying to sell an American version of Britain’s Pop Idol to AbC, CBS, etc. but they were extremely rude to him.

One interviewer, he said took off his shoes and socks and propped his bare feet on the desk right in Simon’s face, another told Simon to start selling whatever it was he was selling then held up his hand after two seconds, said he’d heard enough and that the answer was “no.”

Fox was his last resort and the rest is history.
