Common courtesy (Professional behavior)

So, how many of you- employees, receive a call back from an employer after you have applied for a position? The answer will surprise you.
From my personal experience and that of my close friends, I received a disturbing statistic: Employers rarely give them a call back, whether its great news- you are hired or bad news-“you are not the person we are looking for”. Some employers call 3 weeks after an interview with the news of “you are not what we are looking for”. Other employers just don’t call at all.
Now, why do you ask, it is important for employers to give call backs? The answer is pretty simple, so that the employee will not feel like in limbo and can move on to the next employment opportunity. From the employer side: showing a common courtesy and being professional- to at least inform the employee of the interview outcome: good or bad, gives some kind of positive image, even if the person interviewed did not attain the employment with the particular employer.
Some of my friends,like my best friend decided to take a more proactive approach: she would call the employer a week after interview or 3 days after. On the other hand my other friends were just disappointed by the fact that the employers were not professional and decided never to deal with those employers ever again and never refer anyone for a job interview for that employer.
So, what is your opinion on this matter? Do you use proactive approach or just move on to another employment opportunity? Please feel free to share your experience! 😁

How long do you stay with one Staffing company before moving on to the next

At the beginning of October, my friend lost her job. Years ago, she was in a similar situation and have found Staffing agency of a great help in finding interviews and ultimately a job that was temporary but converted into a permanent one, where she worked for a some years.
So, when she found herself this time in the same, jobless situation, she decided instead of applying to jobs directly, to sign up again with a Staffing agency. She went to an interview on October 8, brought her recent resume, took her proficiency exams, signed her background check forms and release forms. Called every week like she was suppose to do. And NOTHING! 😦
Yes, nothing! Not once was she called for a possible offer, interview or anything. She felt like she was making cold sales calls every Monday! 😦
Now maybe you are asking yourself that she asked for a too high of a pay?! The answer is NO! She actually asked for less than she was making: the amount that would be able to keep her and her family living from paycheck to paycheck, by NY living standards, and still be below middle class! 😦
Anyway, she is all about loyalty. She is not like people that work for multiple agencies. However, it has been almost a month and still NOTHING!

So, my dear readers what do you think? How long would you stay with a Staffing agency before moving on to another one?
