The note you got from the recruiter doesn't seem unusual. Offer a brief reply that both acknowledges the question and the update. Perhaps something like: Thank you for the update. I very much enjoyed connecting with X, Y, and Z during the interviews and am excited about the position. I'll look for your update next week and be sure to reach out to you if ...

Are they trying to probe for my interest in the position or are they just starting a conversation? This is simply an attempt on the recruiters part to see if you caught any red flags from the folks you interviewed with or about the company itself. how should I reply to them to increase my chance of getting the offer? I might say something along the ...

Dmitry is right in his answer in that you allowed the candidate to submit the sample work in a different format without knowing what the consequence of that change would be. This is something that you need to be proactive in admitting is your problem. You also need to point out why this has resulted in the rejection of this candidate. For the purposes ...

You allowed this person to be tested using a different tool. To me, that would mean that you wanted to evaluate the quality of the translation, not the format of the submission. Perhaps that person assumed the same and felt that her time was wasted. In any case, this person got angry dissatisfied with your recruiting process, and I don't think that ...

You tested her and she failed, that’s it. Because she didn’t deliver what you needed, and because you can do without the drama. You can reply that the technical aspects created you lots of costly extra work (that should explain to her why it is important to you), and that you will not be using her services in the future. Or, you can go to your manager ...

What things should be considered when granting access to individuals to add/remove members to g-mail groups for a corporate g-mail environment. You should consider who should have the authority to add members to specific groups. Only you and your company can answer that.

If I said something very direct like "Sending multiple one word emails in succession clutters everyone's inbox. Instead, let's use Slack for communications of that kind from now on. (Insert link to company's guide for installing Slack app and logging in)." Would that be too harsh or unprofessional? Not at all. It reads as polite as possible (in fact, it ...

Your question is wrong. Legality and ethics are completely irrelevant here. The question is: What will you tell your boss if he gets emails from several people in reasonably high positions wanting to know why you are spamming them, with an implied “make sure this stops or else...”

Don't use e-mail address from few years ago from a non-official source Many CEOs have a public e-mail address (first.last@company.com). This may not go to the CEO directly but it does get read, pre-screened, and forwarded if it's relevant enough. Don't overthink this. Unless your event is truly special the likelihood of someone famous showing up is low, ...

Unethical? Yes. Illegal? Reading https://cenkuslaw.com/annoying-email-confidentiality-disclaimers/ makes me think it isn't. You don't mention any explicit confidentially disclosure in the original email but even if there had been one it sounds like it probably wouldn't be legally enforceable anyway (emphasis mine): Confidentiality obligations generally ...

Got access to email of people I would like to contact by an accident of the sender, is it ethical to contact them? No, it is not ethical. Furthermore, you might find your email address on the users permanent SPAM list. Also, in some locations it might be illegal. If you decide to proceed anyway, use the BCC feature (Blind Carbon Copy) so that you do ...

If you are using a job portal, you should probably only be uploading your resume. If there is a section of the portal for personal information including the types of roles you are looking for, make sure you fill that out completely. Also ensure you have a very brief general summary statement at the top of your resume. If you are emailing the company, just ...
