Always read the label: part 3 of 3

A parable exists of a recruiter that specifically asked for candidates to give them descriptions of each of their work experiences that each time covered (1) what their main duties and responsibilities were, (2) a key challenge they overcame in the role and (3) what they learnt about themselves as a result.

The recruiter rejected every candidate that did not answer all 3 parts of the question. Which just happened to be 6 out of 10 applicants.

This isn’t just a parable. It’s also a true story. Always read the label.
