Failure To Review Job Applications and Interview Prospective Employees

Each day millions of job candidates go online and walk-in for applications at your company website,they openly answer your questions that ask how they managed during their employment to buy groceries and earn money to pay the rent. The right word would be unearned income received from the local Board Of Social Services in their city.Only to get disappointed they never receive a call to come in for an interview.They hear nothing from all the prospective employers they applied to for a job..The skills go unused from the experienced applicant. And inexperienced applicants gets no chance to gain new skills that can make all the difference to himself and the world who gains from the quality workmanship to the product he produces or serves up with his new skill taught from a employer who was forward thinking.Willing to give him an opportunity to show what natural ability he had hiding from himself let alone the world at large.Stop passing up all the potential that goes unnoticed everyday from all across america from suburbs to inner city.
