How a VA Can Ruin Their Reputation Permanently with Hiring Managers

This just happened and I feel so terrible for Remi.

Remi runs job applicants through our screening.

Check out below how she was treated by a VA who didn’t pass.

While this candidate may have been offended or feelings hurt from failing, that’s no way to treat someone who is properly and kindly doing their job.

Of course, it’s disappointing to be looking for a job and get turned down repeatedly– especially if bills are overdue.

When you’re sifting through a mountain of candidates trying to find the best ones to work on your team, you will go through a lot of unqualified people.

So don’t take things personally– whether you’re applying or whether you’re screening candidates.
