Job Applicants Are Customers Too - Do They Feel Valued?

Regardless of the business the message to me, the customer, is always the same with a few variations. We value your business – you’re important to us –what can we do to improve our service - we want to meet and exceed your expectations – your satisfaction is guaranteed.

And so it should be – if I’m an existing or potential customer, then I really am an important asset and a costly one to acquire and cultivate.

But do I get that same great service oriented, warm fuzzy welcoming feeling if I apply for a job at the same company?

Brace yourself, because my patience has really run out on this one. What a sorry excuse for the inability to collaborate, communicate, acknowledge the validity of other people, and understand that there is a larger organization beyond your own little fifedom. This is a very popular approach being taken by people who lack the ability to see anything other than what's important to them.
