I have never had a problem getting a job when I wanted to. It did not matter what my educational background was. My credit rating never had anything to do with the likelihood of me being able to earn an income. When I was 16 I just got a paper looked in the want ads made a couple of phone calls and usually was hired on the spot with a friendly conversation.
Today our world is filled with questionnairres, forms, numbers, background /credit checks; they want every single piece of your life history, and still not get a response when you are not even considered.
We need to get a law passed that says if any person spends their valuable time and gives out all their personal information they must be given a reply back when the position is filled. Its common courtesy in business and needs to be recognized as an issue!
Who is with me on this? If enough of you reply I will set up a petition. I would appreciate any thoughts you may have.
