BUT YOU SHOULDN’T GHOST EI­THER

Cosmopolitan Middle East - - YOU!YOU!YOU! / JOB HAUNTING -

No mat­ter how fed up you get with job ghosters, don’t turn the ta­bles – even if it starts to feel nor­mal or be­yond tempt­ing to de­liver some pay­back. (Se­ri­ously: 41 per cent of job ap­pli­cants say they feel just fine ghost­ing a com­pany dur­ing the re­cruit­ing process, ac­cord­ing to Clutch.) Not a great idea, says Amy Cooper Hakim. “Job ghost­ing, on ei­ther side, is not a re­spect­ful prac­tice.” You could end up burn­ing ma­jor bridges you’ll need later in your ca­reer. If you de­cide you’re not into a gig, just send a quick re­sponse: “Thank you for your time, but I don’t think this po­si­tion is the best fit for me. Good luck with your search!”
