Now this is either interesting or funny. Not quite sure which.
I asked a #Recruiter for some #Feedback
as to why my application got rejected.
She replied – Too much White Space.
Too much White Space? I replied back.
Yes – She said.
I asked her to define – White Space as I was thinking it was due to lapses in Employment between dates to which I can explain.
Her response affected me like a scene in Star Wars when a SpaceShip goes into Warp Drive; as I saw those Multi Colored lines that create the impression of speed racing in front of me.
White Space equalled just that.
She was not attracted to the Resume due to lack of colors. Yes, colors.
What happened next before going into a Rainbow Shock?
I thanked her for letting me know & politely wished her a PHENOMENAL day.
I shared this experience with the Company’s Head of Recruiting and ended up having a great conversation with him.
He agreed with what I shared and appreciated the feedback.
Nothing came out of this chat besides being able to #Connect with someone and share thoughts.
This to me made the experience well worth it.
Hey, you can’t always hit a Home Run but when you do please make sure there is a Trail of Glitter following it.
Have a PHENOMENAL day.
