Never Ask Your Friend to Call The Interviewer on Your Behalf

Integrity is an integral component of all employer-employee relationships. This assumes importance during recruitment itself when a prospective employee is interviewed by a potential employer. When candidates are frank, forthright, and fearless they stand a much better chance of being selected.

Nowadays, however, there have been numerous instances of candidates using their friends to interact with recruiters thereby causing serious reliability issues. Here’s what happens if you choose to have your friend call the interviewer on your behalf and the ensuing negative consequences:

1. It Alludes to Inadequate Employee Skills

Having your friend speak for you may suggest that you are incompetent and unqualified and that you wish to mask these demerits through your friend. It will compel the recruiter to doubt your honesty resulting in a spurned application.

2. It Reflects Your Apathy

It displays a certain contempt for your recruiter. Having recognized the deception, the company will assume that you’re committed elsewhere and that your application is a futile formality. Instant candidate rejection will be the most likely fallout.

3. It Connotes Lack of Self-Confidence

Having your friend speak for you immediately conveys that you possess low self-esteem. The recruiter will consider you unfit for performing challenging company tasks and dealing with key entities like clients, investors, and vendors. Again a case for outright candidate refusal – perhaps during the initial telephone conversation itself.

4. It Suggests Yours Inability to Communicate Effectively  

The recruiter may quickly surmise that you are a poor communicator and deficient in aspects like language, diction, pronunciation, and grammar. As being suitably articulate is a fundamental corporate requirement, the company is liable to decline your application.

Thus, for the cogent reasons mentioned above, you would do well to directly interact with your recruiter regardless of your busy schedule or skill and communication level. Remember, confidence is the most desired candidate virtue for modern-day recruiters like HR, Sales, and Business Development consultancies.

Who is to Blame for High Divorce Rate of Working Women?

Modern-day existence is redefining how people conduct their personal and professional lives. Working women in India have especially felt this impact with even a traditionally stable norm like marriage fraying at the edges.

According to a renowned Delhi-based newspaper, although the divorce rate in India is a relatively low 1.3 percent (compared to 5 percent in the United States), the divorce volumes have, on an average, nearly tripled in India’s urbanized metropolitan centers. In Kolkata, for example, 8437 divorce applications were entertained in 2014 compared to only 2388 applications in 2003 – over a threefold increase.

The above indirectly evidences the number of working women being divorced. Who or what is to blame for this phenomenon? The following discussion decodes the factors.

1. Work Stress  

Long working hours, tight deadlines, and strict employers are taking a toll on family commitments leading to failing marriages. Recent data reveals that young Indian couples (from the 25 to 35 age bracket) account for almost 70 percent of urban divorce applications.

2. Rising Personal Independence  

Working women are earning much more today resulting in greater financial stability and more individual freedom. Hence, women, especially those facing abuse, are not afraid to divorce and live independently.

3. Heightened Couple Conflicts  

Couples are undergoing more conflicts owing to aspects like male insecurity, separate working locations, responsibility issues, and extra-marital affairs. Divorce is the inevitable outcome.

4. Diminishing Children Presence  

To counter and augment modern living, couples are delaying having children. This has negated the worry of working women who are now more emboldened to divorce. In fact, surveys show that well over 50 percent of urban divorces are happening during the initial married years.

5. Insulated Lifestyles

Nowadays, technology has seriously affected face-to-face interactions. Thus, working women have become increasingly inclined to be on their own and are experiencing lesser personal pressure from parents and acquaintances.

6. Changing Social Tenets and Perceptions

Marriage, as an institution, is losing its conventional hold and sheen. Society, too, has come to perceive divorce as an integral part of contemporary living thus making divorced individuals less tabooed.
