property like the IT industry, I have heard that once they hand in their notice or are given notice, they are escorted out of the buildings.
Is this practice also common in the recruiting industry? If not, then what seems to be the standard practice?…
Ya gotta love this:

ANKARA: A Ukrainian passenger on an Istanbul-bound flight claimed Friday there was a bomb on board and tried to hijack the plane to Sochi, Russia, where the Winter Olympics are kicking off, an official said.
An F-16 fighter plane was scrambled as soon as the pilot signaled there was a hijacking attempt and escorted the plane safely to Istanbul's Sabiha Gokcen airport, its original destination

t LinkedIn. I got the exact same, allegedly personalised, email from the same recruiter (from a major high street agency) twice in one day for a job that admittedly did look quite interesting, when I emailed back asking her to call me about it I got an auto bounce back email saying the inbox was unchecked and I would not receive a reply. I doubt the person who emailed even actually exists. Quite frustrating as it further discredits legitimate recruiters who might make an approach to a candidate over email if they can't get hold of them on the phone.
On a slightly unrelated note, the funniest spam I ever got on LinkedIn was asking me to essentially become an escort to wealthy older men in my area! Needless to say I had a good laugh and then deleted it. Quite the career change. …
orking out. Kept his head down on papers on his desk as he delivered the news. (Prick)
She was kind of shell shocked and did not probe. The HR person then escorted her out and said that she did not know the reason either. Reviews were positive, etc.
She has a stable work record and was with the previous company for 5 years before this one. (around 9 months).
My quandary is how do I present her? My HM is going to want to know the RFL (reason for leaving).
I told her she should demand a reason from HR. I am not a lawyer but I feel she deserves at least that. Otherwise, it will hinder her ability to move on.
Once we know the reason, I'm sure we can overcome it.
ty concern, the company hosting your solution will be able to provide you with an overview of their security protocol, which, in many cases, may be even better than what you have on your company servers.
We use Jobvite, which we've found to be intuitive, a good value, and it fits your needs (notes, interview comments, Outlook integration). It's an on-demand solution, and I can access it from anywhere in the world, including using my iPhone in the middle of backwoods Georgia!
As far as the security concerns, Jobvite handles their security very well, using several layers of protection. All content is SSL, and all HTTP requests use encrypted keys, so they cannot be modified to access other data. All server requests are validated, so the application constantly verifies the ability of a user to access information.
All customer data is backed up every 24 hours, and housed in Jobvite's state of the art data center. they have 24/7 on-site support engineers. Additionally, Jobvite's managed hosting partner provides expert 24/7 intrusion monitoring to identify and prevent unauthorized access to the data center.
From a physical security standpoint, the data center is secured with biometric locks and 24-hour security personnel. Everyone entering the building is screened and verified, and visitors are escorted to their appropriate locations.
I know I sound like a commercial for Jobvite, but I am just a very happy user. :) They have proven to provide a stable, scalable, competitively-priced solution that meets our needs.
I hope this helps!
ifferent from being fired for performance and all industries have their horror stories of "terminations" done wrong or badly. Aerospace in particular, due large and small contract approvals and sudden contract cancellations, is famous and infamous for unique terminations--like "pink slips" received by new hires upon arrival to start a new job (heard that). Or Security and HR-ER following you to your desk after you’ve been terminated to pack you up to go with escort (saw that). And mass terminations where groups of employees, actually former employees, were addressed in mass relative to benefits, outplacement services, etc. Some were contentious.
However, most “terminations” I’ve noticed, and have been a part of, were handled with civility, respect and appreciation for legal ramifications. I recall one PhD Research Scientist had her job offer rescinded soon after it was accepted due to an unexpected change in organizational needs. She was given a verbal and written apology and a check in the amount of what six-month’s pay would have been had she started at the salary originally offered. She called me to express her understanding of the situation and for the generous compensation for not a single day of work…and offered to be available to my employer in the future should are needs change.
Sometimes it’s time to cut or be cut. It's happened to me, it happens to worst and the best…and to those in the middle of those extremes.…
ls who made the mistake of coming into his, and his crew’s, line-of-sight. So he and his crew enjoy comparing notes about the shortcomings of others and they operate in our industry of Recruitment & HR. I should give them a pass?
I tend to laugh at the funny in a sitcom like Seinfeld because it’s entertainment. In real life I distinguish misery, desperation, confusion and panic as not funny at all. Because I challenge an activity as immature and unprofessional doesn't make me "god-like"--it makes me empathetic to those who are the butt of the jokes. One would think, particularly in an environment heightened by high unemployment and millions of people desperately pursuing options, it’s not smart to continue to poke fun at those who stumble as they pursue some semblance of a better place to be.
Now Greg says he's going to take the high road...after he took the low road--now, that's funny.
Yes, past experiences leave indelible marks. I’ve escorted drunks out of job fairs and dealt with seriously bizarre and hostile behavior over the past forty years—in prisons; in company lobbies and in interview situations. Rather than treating them as laughable moments to be replayed for entertainment purposes, I’ve used them as teaching moments. I train other recruiters, other company reps and hiring managers to be aware of and to know how to act when the unexpected happens. Like when some student group is throwing blood on your recruitment display on campus because your company is thought to be testing animals. I advise them on how to act because their safety may be in play.…
