    Episode 47 Q&A w/ Tim Dahlby - Rule of thumb for # of interviews? | The "Sensitive" generation | The HR "Mafia"

    Episode 47 Q&A w/ Tim Dahlby - Rule of thumb for # of interviews? | The "Sensitive" generation | The HR "Mafia"

    We are back with our first Q&A episode of the season, and I had to bring back my friend and guest co-host Tim Dahlby for the fun. IN this episode we explore 3 questions- 1) does HR have a rule of thumb for how many people they will interview for a job? 2) Should a co-opt intern succumb to the stereotypes of being a part of the most "sensitive" generation by raising an HR complaint? and 3) Do HR people have a secret, covert blacklist of employees that they share?

    Needless to say, we get a little cheeky. Have a listen and don't forget to subscribe, rate and review!
