This week I decided to give a personnel agent the boot because of the second no-show of one of their candidates for an interview without any notification whatsoever.
I probably would have let it slide if the agent actually apologised after I notified her of the first no-show.
This gets me down to the topic, if any of these candidates or even the agent had shown some consideration, and did the right thing, one of the five candidates that had an interview scheduled might have been the right one. But since none of them showed any consideration, I decided to do the same, and cancel all the remaining interviews, and move my business to another agent.
Unfotunately this trend of showing no consideration for our fellow South Africans is becoming more and more evident nowadays. On our roads, in our shops, everywhere.
Until we don't start showing some, our country is never going to be the awesome place it could be…
The message that I'm trying to convey here, is that next time you do something that could influence the lives of others, have some consideration for the repercussions of your actions.
