A PhD is about to graduate, see the name, should be to India or Pakistan, the Middle East, on the professional networking site LinkedIn in contact with me. I think he is trying to find work. And sure enough, the second day he send an email to come over, mouth said, hi, I am so-and-so school doctoral student, have this or that kind of background, have suitable position in your company?
I looked at the email, always feel uncomfortable. I don't have a name? Have you gotten in touch with me on LinkedIn, very accurate know my name, work background, and other basic personal information. If only one hi, total feel very abrupt. Wanted to reply to remind him, think about or forget it, never met to hurt people's feelings also don't have to. But this man had lost a chance to improve. He certainly is not the first time such email. Unfortunately, this also is doomed to not him one last time to do so. Some is not a good habit, or practice has been can not get rid of, is because of lack of closed-loop feedback mechanism, the parties are "body" in the mountain, often don't know that bad habit.
It also reflects the entry of ABC. Besides call abrupt, the candidate can't see also have done much research, just search for a needle in a haystack to ask if there is any suitable position for him. I want to tell him, all jobs posted on the company website, if you can find a suitable job, I may help you transfer your resume. Suddenly think, or forget it. He chance there, I why so serious? Actually in the work environment, most managers are very busy, often deal with a wupan e-mails a day, a series of meeting. Who can have the time to help people to do research? In silicon valley, director level and above, basic is moderate, the meeting one day daily work mostly on the sidelines, or after working overtime. If you were to cover these people, he can give you the time is estimated for a few seconds, you'll have to put all the information ready, he will be able to make decisions within a few seconds, or transfer your mail to one's colleagues, or directly to the bin.
Seven or eight years ago, my boss give you an article, said is how to become a perfect staff. Most things forget, firmly remember: one is if you want to seek approval from the supervisor, you should have all the information are ready and prepared to do the analysis is finished, the superior the only to do that is to say Yes or No. Incomplete information or analysis can cause waste, because policymakers have to back, applicants have to provide new information or analysis, again is part of a quality as step was not done. I often received over the years, the reader's mail, ask for professional development or business issues. Some very specific and want me to do that is to say Yes or No. Some just like the PhD students, rhetoric and the problem is not specific, background information is not complete, I want to help out some ideas, turn head to always feel that the risk is too big, lane is bad to can perpetuated this misunderstanding. So Email is put in there, and the next day and there are dozens of hundreds Email, this Email was out of sight.
