Are these real companies ?

Query

I've noticed that there are a lot of one worded postings recently like the two directly below me, which rarely seem to attract responses.

Is this because the companies named don't exist, and the posters are just having a laugh?

Also, what ever happened to the 1000 word plus postings where some guy from India used to post his entire CV on here ? They were always a good laugh

It's difficult to know for sure. They can be communication errors (like Chinese whispers), tired people at the end the week (typers-cramp types), comedians looking for an alternative audience etc.

My guess would be the communication scenario. The trouble with some recruitment processes is that the candidate is made to feel too inferior by an agent or less generally by the actual employer. This reduces normal communication to an impossibility (i.e. it's not a two-or-three process but a one way process).

It is easy to get too sceptical, but it makes more sense to get back to the agent/hr contact to clear up communication errors ASAP, or to reflect at the weekend on a lucky escape!

The India anecdote is bolly brillaint. If I had been hiring in India I'd have considered him. If some recruitment agents want to act like the sacred cows of the consulting industry, then just drive round them!

Look's like we are about to leave the front page Query.

Pity someone didn't setup a consultancy called Friday's, then we might have guessed they were having a laugh.

Goodbye ?
