Letter: Common courtesy for job applicants

Common courtesy for job applicants

A letter to the employers of the Okanagan Valley.

They are looking for workers all over. It does make it hard for workers because there is no place to live.

We do have workers, that live here and they need jobs. Do the employers even read the resumes?

The people see the signs everywhere, now hiring. The mistake is that the employee never gets back to the people handing out their resumes. I would look at the top three resumes. Then you could let the worker know yes or no. It only takes a quick phone call and I think at the very least they should do that and let them know if they will keep their resume on file if the job goes to someone else.

I had a business for 12 years. I would not ever do that to a potential worker.
