To Thy Self Be True
During my job search, I received what appeared to be a wonderful job offer. This company is an industry leader. When I received the offer, I was flattered, excited, but frustrated. Their onboard process was a nightmare and that is when I added a post call “Application Nightmare.” I did not think it could get any worse -- but it did. When and why do you walk away from a job offer? The last straw for me was an assumption on the company’s part about technology. If you want me to work from home, the company computer you send me has to be self-contained. In other words, I will not need to purchase any additional equipment (like a router), or make changes to my Internet service (install Wi-Fi). The company should not have assumed that my home office was like one of their workstations. I am very proud of my home office; it is modest but functional. It is equipped with a refurbished Dell laptop that is reliable, a black and white printer that works, and an external modem with high speed Internet. Is this the latest technology, no; but I have to work within my budget. It appears that this company has lost sight of the individual and views their workforce as nothing more than an assembly line. I am a person, not a number.
