Have you ever applied for a job you thought you were perfect for, and then heard nothing? Have you ever gone on a job interview, thought you nailed it, and got total radio silence? The answer to both of those questions is probably yes. You’re left wondering what you did wrong and what you could do to better next time, but no one will tell you. In fact, even if you ask directly for feedback, you probably won’t get any.
But to prove that no good deed goes unpunished, Non-Compete, Trade Secrets & Unfair Competition Attorney Jonathan Pollard went out of his way to give feedback to an applicant and got a terrible Glass Door Review in response. The candidate wrote:
Jonathan Pollard is one of the rudest and unprofessional hiring managers I have ever encountered in my job seeking experience. After applying for the job, he sent me a one-paragraph critique of my writing samples, instead of simply telling me that my experience is not the right fit for his firm.
